Brazil B3 to Be the Latest Addition to TNS’ Growing Global Portfolio

·3 min read

Transaction Network Services (TNS) today announced it now offers traders access to market data at one of the world’s largest exchanges, B3, in Brazil. This new offering is the first Latin American exchange connection for TNS, which has comprehensive access to all the world’s major exchanges delivered globally over its low latency network.

B3, headquartered in São Paulo, is the largest futures market in Latin America. TNS is one of a handful of market data vendors registered with the exchange. TNS now has connections to B3 to deliver market data and order routing access to all B3 markets.

Alexandre Jahnecke, B3’s Head of IT Products Development, said: "We are delighted to have TNS onboard in our infrastructure. This is an important step that will provide B3 with global reach and create a better quality experience for all of our trading participants."

"B3 is a significant addition for TNS’ growing portfolio," said Jeff Mezger, Senior Director of Product Management for TNS’ Financial Markets business. "In 2020, B3’s BM&F became the world’s second largest derivatives exchange by volume. It is a strong, thriving market, and we are thrilled to be able to help traders access market data with the lowest latencies available commercially through a data vendor."

With this connection, TNS continues its leadership position of delivering high performance managed solutions for the trading industry. TNS’ mutualized exchange connections combined with its high-performance backbone that minimizes network latency and packet loss delivers a lower cost than a do-it-yourself solution.

TNS brings together over 2,800 financial community endpoints, supported by a global, 125-strong point-of-presence footprint. Specifically designed and engineered to address the needs of financial market participants worldwide, TNS offers a range of connectivity, colocation, cloud, market data and VPN solutions within its infrastructure as a service (IaaS) portfolio.
