BSO SIGNS UP THE TEL AVIV EXCHANGE AS TRADERS SEEK ACCESS TO BOOMING ISRAELI STOCK MARKETS

We have new direct connectivity from the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange back to London, enabling members of the exchange to trade Israeli stocks without the need to invest in long-haul infrastructure. Tel Aviv Stock Exchange

The agreement builds on our reputation as the leading low-latency connectivity provider to the emerging markets.

Our flexibility to adjust our low-latency connectivity ensures global investors can quickly access the Israeli market.

With annual GDP growth predicted to be around 3.5% over the next two years, the Israeli economy is racing. The growth, especially in the high-tech sector, makes investing in Israeli companies a highly attractive proposition for firms trading the global stock markets.

Ittai Ben-Zeev, CEO at the Tel Aviv Exchange said:

“As part of TASE’s strategic plan to encourage international investors to trade on TASE, to expand trading volumes and improve liquidity, we are proud to cooperate with BSO. The new connection enables an easy and efficient direct access to TASE.”

Fraser Bell, our Chief Commercial Officer, added:

“Being at the heart of connecting the trading community to new and high-growth regions such as Israel is core to BSO’s service-led approach. Our agreement with the Tel Aviv Exchange reinforces our continued commitment to providing the electronic trading community with continuous and stable access to the most prosperous markets.”

Our tie-up with the Tel Aviv Exchange meets the growing demand for more reliable and flexible services that suit the needs of market makers looking to ramp up their trading activity across emerging regions.

The deal is the latest in a long line of our emerging market-focus agreements has struck, following announcements with Sucden Financial, RJO Brien and the CME Group.
