Hong Kong based Global eSolutions (HK) Limited (GES), a leading financial trading platform vendor announced its stock trading platform – GES EX has passed the certification test of HKEx Orion Central Gateway (OCG) and Orion Market Data (OMD-C) platform, becoming one of the few independent software vendors who have passed both of the tests in the first anniversary of the launch of GES EX.
Reviewing GES EX’s development during the first year, GES Assistant Director of Development Mr. Alex Wong said, “In order to cope with the reform of HKEx core trading platform, it is inevitable that Broker Supplied System (BSS) vendors have to upgrade on their trading platform. With the joint efforts of GES and its clients, we have performed a comprehensive upgrade on GES EX and successfully passed a series of conformance tests for the BSS solution.”
“Firstly, to cope with the HKEx new market data platform OMD-C, we applied for GES EX as OMD-C certified software. We successfully passed the test within two months and have officially become HKEx certified ISV for OMD-C platform since 10 August, 2015. In this case, GES EX users no longer need to perform the test by themselves and hence saving the costs.” Alex Wong added.
GES Senior Marketing Executive Jeffrey Lo said, “To enable customers to experience low-latency trading by switching to OCG smoothly, we actively assisted customers to pass through a series of tests (e.g. simulator test, end to end test, rollout test) over the past year to ensure the platform readiness before rollout of every GES EX that connected to OCG. With close communication and coordination with the customers and the network suppliers, we can now implement multi-task processing and complete the whole test in only one month.”
As for the 2016 roadmap, Jeffrey Lo pointed out that, “With the ongoing opening of China’s capital market and the internalization of the RMB, we believe there will be more room for cooperation between Hong Kong and China stock market. Next year we will put our focus on Shanghai- and Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect as well as global market modules. In addition to the stock market, our technology specialists are actively developing a new futures trading system that will most likely be launched in mid-2016.”
