Access via co-location is available for the categories Brokerage House and Investor. The differences are as follows:

Brokerage house co-location

In this modality, the Participant will contract for the access and will have exclusive access to the hosting unit and trading equipment installed in the Exchange’s data center to perform user/administration/management/control functions. The Participant may install software on its servers to send orders on behalf of its own accounts or on behalf of its customer accounts. These customers may, at the participant’s discretion, remotely access the trading software.

The connectivity sessions established for trading via co-location must be used solely for this purpose. If these sessions are shared by various customers, they must be distributed among those customers at the discretion of the Participant.

Investor co-location

In this modality, Investor and its brokerage house will contract for the access and only the Investor will have exclusive access to the hosting unit and trading equipment installed in the Exchange’s data center to perform user/administration/management/control functions. Customer may install software in its servers to transmit orders exclusively on behalf of its own accounts.

This modality allows the Investor to trade through several Participants by using the same equipment. In this case, the investor must establish at least one connectivity session for each selected Participant, and each session must be used solely for trading.

It is important to note that, regardless of the contracted modality, hosting units may not be sublet.
