Chicago is home to three major financial and futures exchanges: the Chicago Stock Exchange, the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (the "Merc"). Because of their close proximity and partnerships with Equinix, our Financial eXchange service specialises in serving the unique needs of the banking and trading communities within the financial services sector. This service allows large banks and trading exchanges to link directly to their "communities of interest" — key strategic partners and suppliers such as brokers, traders, clearing house merchants, data feed suppliers and proprietary software vendors.
