Horizon Software, an algorithmic and electronic trading technology solution provider, announced on Tuesday its new connectivity to the Singapore Exchange (SGX Group), which came within six months of its office that were launched in Singapore.
The direct connection to the SGX Group will allow Horizon clients to access and trade on multiple financial markets and make a market on exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Further, they can hedge faster and more efficiently.

"To meet the diverse requirements and sophisticated trading strategies of global market participants today, we are constantly working with the right partners to deliver growth. We are delighted to welcome Horizon Software to provide market participants with access to our SGX Securities and Derivatives Trading," said Pol De Win, the Senior Managing Director and Head of Global Sales and Origination at SGX Group.
