LONDON -- IXEurope Plc, Europe's specialist datacentre services company, has joined the Technical Special Interest Group (TechSIG) of JWG-IT Group, the think-tank for EU driven IT change in financial services.

IXEurope joins Intel, Sybase, Kurtosys, Cisco, BT and many other leading technology firms to participate in think-tank forums on specific issues and collaboratively develop practical IT infrastructure solutions to resolve MiFID compliance problems.

As one of Europes fastest-growing providers of datacentre services, IXEurope works with financial institutions to help them address the IT infrastructure aspects of key areas of change including issues related to MiFID compliance. With its IXFX™ (IXEurope Financial Exchange) solution, IXEurope provides a highly resilient and convenient co-location platform, while its Europe-wide hosting infrastructure is able to support more sophisticated trading strategies and deliver low latency performance.

Guy Willner, CEO of IXEurope, says: “I believe it is important for organisations such as IXEurope to play a key role in the TechSIG: In order to help the financial market meet the demands of the MiFID legislation, it is essential that the IT community works together. IXEurope is delighted to have the opportunity to be involved with an independent organisation like JWG-IT to help guide developments. We look forward to playing a role in shaping best practice and bringing effective solutions to market.”
