We’re thrilled to be shortlisted as Technology Provider of the Year for the second consecutive year.

BSO was a finalist in the 2015 FStech awards for the same category. Since then, we have made substantial advancements to our Ultra Low Latency finance network, invested extensively in our U.S. connectivity and increased our international points-of-presence by 30%.

We remain guided by our founding mission – to pioneer superior connectivity between the world’s established and emerging marketplaces to unlock new trading opportunities, all of which solves the distinct challenges faced by the international finance community.

Our team’s commitment and energy going into 2016 has never faltered and we’ve delivered a long list of improvements for our customers’ benefits, including the first phase of our U.S. expansion strategy and multiple new routes worldwide. We are trusted by a committed, growing customer base that believes in our approach, and hope that this trust coupled with our proven commitment to growth and improvements since 2015 will cement our position as an FStech award winner this year.

The awards are independently judged and the winners will be announced at the FStech Awards Gala Dinner & Ceremony on 23 March 2017 at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square. Be the first to find out who wins – follow us on twitter @BSONetwork and LinkedIn.
