WE’VE BEEN SHORTLISTED FOR THE BEST NEW TECHNOLOGY PRODUCT – CONNECTIVITY IN FOW AWARDS 2017

We’re excited to announce at the annual MENA Trading & Asset Management Summit in Dubai that we have received our third award nomination this year!

As a silver sponsor at Global Investor Group’s Dubai Summit, we’re extremely proud to have been shortlisted for Best New Technology Product – Connectivity in the FOW International Awards 2017.

The nomination reflects our ongoing determination this year to continue to provide market-leading connectivity and technical excellence for our clients.

For example, in 2017 we engineered a number of new and enhanced connectivity routes across the world, especially within the Asia-Pacific region including Dubai, Taiwan, India and, notably, China.

Earlier this year, we enjoyed being a part of the discussions around MiFID II and RegAT over at FOW Tel Aviv and have proudly sponsored FOW Dubai over the past three years, where shaping the future of financial trading in the region has been a continuous theme.

Our ambition is to redefine connectivity by delivering a new approach to customer experience. We aim to be flexible and agile in our approach which allows us to expand quickly into new territories.

An example of this is our ongoing project with broker Sucden Financial. We assisted them in overcoming geographical limitations, specifically connectivity into China. Gavin Parker, COO of Sudden Financial, commented:

“BSO’s flexible approach provided us with an extremely solid combination of routes to meet – and exceed – our goals of stability. The team is constantly evaluating the routes as market conditions evolve and opportunities become available for further optimisation. We are confident we have the very best connectivity on the market.”

We’re extremely humbled to have our hard work recognised as an FOW awards finalist. The results will be revealed at the ceremony in London on the 6th of December – watch this space!

Did you know we were crowned ‘Best Low Latency Network Provider’ earlier this year?

We are delighted to have been honoured in the Intelligent Trading Technology Awards, voted for by members of the financial community back in June. The competition was fierce, but our customer service and technical excellence reigned supreme!
