Happy birthday for twenty-five years of innovation

Many congratulations to the whole team of GATElab in London, Milan and Isernia, who celebrates its 25th anniversary this week.

Originally founded on 5 October 1989, becoming part of the London Stock Exchange Group in 2012, GATElab is a leading provider of trading and post-trading solutions to the global financial community and has evolved to become a true market innovator, providing its buy-side and sell-side partners with the most advanced trading technology, from algorithmic trading to ultra low latency, High Frequency Trading (HFT) solutions.

GATElab's focus is firmly on innovation. It has an outstanding track record of driving up standards by putting sophisticated technology to practical use. Since its early days GATElab has long-believed in partnering with the world of academia to drive this innovation, and has strong relationships with universities both in Italy and abroad. These partnerships have allowed GATElab to pioneer some of the most effective and intelligent trading solutions available, and grow the organisation into the international business it is today.

Antonio Caroselli, co-founder and Chairman of the Board of Directors, says: "Quality of service and extreme attention to performance has allowed us to establish the GATElab brand as ‘best of breed’ solution in capital markets. Our 25 years of technological evolution could be summarized in our trading platform whose latency at its third generation has been reduced from milliseconds, to hundredths of microseconds and now tenths of microseconds".

Ferdinando La Posta, co-founder and CEO, comments: "We are proud of becoming part of such a globally prestigious organization as London Stock Exchange Group and look forward to supplying our customers with the most comprehensive and technologically advanced trading technology".
