More than just ASX access 

ASX recognises accessing multiple markets and venues can be costly and complex.  To support the financial markets community, ASX has made investments evolving its own connectivity services, opening up access to alternative trading markets and venues.

As an example, through a simple cross connect or managed bandwidth service, ASX can connect you directly to Chi-X Australia, National Stock Exchange, Financial and Energy Exchange, Yieldbroker and more.
