Chicago is home to hundreds of global and domestic players in business, multiple major equities, options and futures and stock exchanges. This whitepaper delves into the financial ecosystem, network density and interconnection options present inside the three Chicago data centers from Equinix. Finance companies enjoy better access to data providers, brokers, trading and risk application providers, shorter time to market for product launches, and lower costs.


  • Benefits of data centers in Chicago, including many high value financial exchange customers and carriers
  • Interconnection to 200+ buy-sides, sell-sides, prime brokers, clearing members and networks
  • Connectivity to trading systems for liquidity providers, market makers, hedge funds and  trading groups
Bringing together a broad range of network providers along with buy-sides, sell-sides, exchanges, alternative trading platforms, market data and analytics providers into a single location can dramatically lower the complexity and cost of connectivity. A network-rich data center helps manage overall costs, improve throughput and drive down latency.
