NEW YORK, October 23rd, 2012Perseus Telecom, a leading global provider of connectivity, today announced an upcoming panel session at the Markets Media Trading and Investment Summit on October 24, 2012 in Chicago. At the event, Dr. Jock Percy, CEO of Perseus Telecom, will speak on the various obstacles trading firms face when entering new markets and how they can tackle these challenges.

Dr. Percy will be addressing leaders from the investment community, exchanges, broker-dealers and alternative trading systems in Chicago on an increasing area of concern for trading firms – the challenge and opportunity presented by emerging markets. As part of his presentation, Dr. Percy will speak to:

-        The growing opportunity presented by far-flung markets such as Brazil, South Africa and Turkey and how trading firms are looking to leverage these opportunities

-        The regulatory, personnel and support requirements for successful operations in emerging markets

-        The ability for third-party service providers to reduce the barrier to entry by providing flexibility, reducing cost, streamlining ease of access and minimizing time-to-market

-        How foreign firms can leverage third-parties to access an infrastructure to trade, eliminating the need to acquire a business operations license to build an entire infrastructure

-        The benefits of a managed service which provides procurement of hardware, deployment and staging of hardware in foreign markets, thereby minimizing the cost of goods and services for firms without local personnel to purchase, manage and deploy infrastructure
