Hyannis Port Research (HPR), provider of advanced capital markets infrastructure (CMI) technologies, today announced the expansion of its market access platform to include support for the Shanghai-Hong Kong and Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connects. With the move, HPR becomes the first firm to provide trading access through the platforms using an ultra-high-performance pre-trade risk gateway.

HPR’s platform includes its two pre-trade risk products for low latency market access: Riskbot® and Softbot®. Both provide over 50 highly customizable risk parameters, ranging from pre-trade fat-finger checks to full organization-wide portfolio risk checks. Approximately 15% of the Australian market’s equity volume and 10% of the US market’s equity volume is handled by the two products.

“The two stock connects have become vital components of Asian equity market structure, enabling investment capital to flow between China and the international community like never before,” said HPR CEO Anthony Amicangioli. “By extending our platform to cover these two routes, we allow investors to leverage a world-class market access platform that provides unmatched levels of risk management, performance and stability.”
