CameronTec Expands Footprint in Japan Capital Markets

CameronTec has announced expanded Japan operations to support its large growing client base in the region. This news comes at a time when after years of investing mainly in trading systems for markets abroad, Japan’s trading world is priming for significant technology spend. At the forefront of providing trading technology for Japan’s Capital Markets is CameronTec Group.

CameronTec first entered the local Japanese market in early 2000 when electronic trading started to take hold in the region. During the past 15 years CameronTec’s client base in the region has steadily grown, today representing more than 25 institutional and retail-focused trading firms.

“Technology such as FIX infrastructure is a key consideration for firm’s looking to position themselves for continued growth and market leadership, and Japan represents a strong market for CameronTec where our robust products and services are the key to success for many trading firms,” says Anders Henriksson, CEO for CameronTec Group. “Exchange consolidation has made it much easier for investors to connect to and trade in Japan, putting pressure on local firms to simplify and rationalize the entire trading layer.”

“CameronTec is well positioned to meet the evolving requirements of Japan’s Capital Markets industry and I am pleased to announce our expanded operations in the region resulting in a new corporate office led by our Japan-based team,” says Wais Metzing, President Asia Pacific for CameronTec Group.

At the core of CameronTec technology is a unique understanding of the FIX world that comes from a concentration of the world’s largest FIX deployments.  With a host of industry-firsts, Catalys and CameronFIX provide unprecedented levels of flexibility and innovation that firms need to sustainably differentiate in today’s markets.
