Strata Partners is delighted to announce that it acted as exclusive corporate finance adviser to Adaptive Financial Consulting Limited (“Adaptive”), the specialist global electronic trading consultancy, on its acquisition of Real Logic Limited (“Real Logic”), a low-latency trading technology development firm.
Adaptive Financial Consulting builds and operates bespoke trading systems across asset classes for financial services firms wanting to own their technology to differentiate and compete in the long-term. The acquisition enhances Adaptive’s capabilities in delivering this service and follows a long-standing relationship between the two firms. Real Logic’s Aeron open-source software already underpins Adaptive’s Hydra Platform, a high level development platform which accelerates the development of trading systems for its clients.
Real Logic delivers front office solutions for financial services firms in capital markets, developing low-latency trading systems using Aeron, the open-source messaging system, and Aeron Cluster, a technology that provides fault-tolerance through consensus. Aeron is the market-leading messaging system for trading firms concerned with performance, whether deployed on premise or in the cloud, and is a product of years of innovation by the team at Real Logic.
