 Millisecond Matters

While New York, Tokyo and London often stand out as the ‎leading global financial centres, with more ‎than half of the worldwide currency ‎trading occuring through the three capitals, the latency decrease, ‎even in milliseconds, ‎should speed up the execution and give FX traders the edge to maximize the ‎‎number of trades processed on the ultra low latency network. ‎

Commenting on the news, Michael Ourabah, CEO at BSO, said: “Network latencies ‎are all about time ‎and money in the international FX community. We understand that ‎a single millisecond can have a ‎powerful impact for our customers and give them the ‎competitive advantage they need,”‎

‎“We are always pushing the limits of our network infrastructure, which has resulted ‎in ultra low ‎latency connectivity on one of the busiest FX circuits in the world,” he ‎added.‎

Headquartered in London, Key marketplaces of BSO include London, New York, Chicago, ‎Russia and Europe, ‎Dubai and the Middle East, and many of APAC’s key exchanges ‎‎– Singapore, Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong ‎Kong, Mumbai and Sydney. However, the ‎company has placed a strong emphasis recently on expanding its ‎presence in the US and ‎Japan markets during 2015. Last summer, BSO officially opened a ‎regional ‎headquarters in New York to to further support its growing US client base. ‎ ‎
