BSO becomes fastest connectivity provider to the Mexican Stock Exchanges_

BSO, a global pioneering infrastructure and connectivity provider, has today announced it has upgraded its backbone route into Mexico City, making it the fastest low-latency connectivity provider to both the Mexican Stock Exchange (BMV) and the Institutional Stock Exchange (BIVA).

Mexico City is home to two of the largest stock exchanges in Latin America, establishing itself as a hub for high-frequency traders. By upgrading this route, BSO further strengthens its positioning in the region following a route upgrade to Brazilian exchange B3 and strategic partnership with EllaLink, the express optical platform between Europe and Latin America.

The routes are currently available to all BSO customers offering unrivalled access to the Mexican stock market.

Commenting on the upgrade route Stephen McConnell, Head of Sales America, said: “As demand for high frequency trading increases in Latin America, reliable low latency connections have never been more important. This upgrade will continue to allow the systematic trading community to operate seamlessly to some of the most important centres of commerce in the region.” 

Michael Ourabah, CEO of BSO added:
“The upgrade of these routes will significantly enhance the experience of our customers operating in Mexico, providing them with the fastest connections available. It marks another important step for BSO as we strengthen our offerings in some of Latin America’s fastest-growing areas. Our continued engagement with these exchanges displays our commitment to providing capital market firms with the most reliable access to some of the most lucrative and attractive financial centres in the world.”
