The company’s shared market infrastructure is a neutral platform that provides access to pre-trade, trade, and post-trade applications across the straight-through processing (STP) chain.

Formerly named "Radianz," the company was acquired by British Telecommunications in 2005 and renamed "BT Radianz."

160 market data vendors, trade execution and order management services, ECNs and exchanges, and clearing and settlement firms currently access more than 10,000 financial sites through BT Radianz.

History

Radianz was founded as a joint venture between Reuters and Equant.

In January 2008, the International Securities Exchange (ISE) announced it would use Radianz's network for trade execution and market data.

In April 2008, BT added alternative trading system Chi-X Canada to its Radianz Shared Market Infrastructure.[2]

Radianz was named a “Best Network Provider – 2004” by Waters magazine’s readers.

In February 2019, Gemini announced that it had joined the global cloud platform Radianz Cloud, connecting it to financial institutions on the Cloud network. According to Nick Vigier of Gemini, existing Radianz customers will be able to access Gemini's FIX interface.[3]
