ACTIV Financial said today that global securities firm Jeffries is now using its market data processing unit with an eye on lower latency and better management of soaring data volumes.

Jeffries, which has been an ACTIV client since 2006, is also deploying ACTIV’s MPU to reduce trading costs within its equities segment while driving its global trading strategies. The company had already been using the platform to gain access to low latency market data.
