BSO’S GLOBAL CONNECTIVITY AIDS RECORD FOREIGN TRADING VOLUMES FOR BORSA ÍSTANBUL
Congratulations to our partner Borsa İstanbul on increasing their total trading volume from foreign investors by 122 percent. Foreign investors now account for a record 30% of the Borsa’s total trading volume.
In July 2015, BSO partnered with Borsa Ístanbul to facilitate collocation within the exchange and direct connectivity into the region for finance and HFT firms.
Back then, Tuncay Dinç, CEO at Borsa İstanbul, said:“BSO’s hub in our data centre will increase our global reach and make it easier for our global investors to access Borsa Ístanbul’s markets.”
Six months later, that ambition has come true.
BSO and Borsa Ístanbul’s partnership has helped increase trading volume by 52% in 2015, with the Borsa securing an all-time record 90.3 million contracts.
