RTS Chosen as Key Technology Vendor for Chinese University of Hong Kong Trading Lab

RTS Realtime Systems Group, a leading global trading solutions provider, announced today that the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) has selected the firm as the key technology provider for its state-of-the-art new trading laboratory opening tomorrow.
Equipped on the university campus with real-time trading solutions that professional traders employ globally, CUHK students will be able to gain real-world trading experience. Utilizing RTS’ low latency and algorithmic trading solutions, they can employ a variety of sophisticated strategies in a simulated, automated trading environment, including hands-on volatility spreads, complex hedging strategies and quantitative research using real data.

In the initial phase, CUHK final-year undergraduate students taking courses on options and derivatives in the coming academic year will utilize the new trading lab. Subsequently, the new facility is expected to play an increasingly important role in the finance training of the university’s MBA and Master of Science degree students, as well as those in the executive education programs.

Said Professor van Put, Adjunct Professor of the CUHK Business Faculty: “We strongly believe that our trading lab, with real-time data feeds from the major global exchanges, and assistant teachers who are professional traders, will offer our students a great chance to explore the financial markets and its traded products. This new generation of traders, risk managers and compliance officers are needed to fulfill the increasing need for qualified staff in the Chinese and Asian Pacific financial markets. We appreciate the kind support of RTS as a founding sponsor and welcome the opportunity to offer the firm’s best of breed technology in our real-time trading and training efforts.”

Alex Lamb, Executive Board Member of RTS, said: “This is a ground-breaking effort that CUHK has undertaken, and RTS is committed to ensuring its success. We are proud to partner with the university and its team of professors on enriching the trading-related academic program and ensuring that the technology reflects the latest ultra-fast tools the industry has to offer.”

In September, the Singapore Exchange and NanyangTechnologicalUniversity announced the establishment of the Centre for Financial Education in Singapore, with RTS as the key technology partner.
