BSO becomes the fastest provider to B3 connecting international traders to Latin America's largest exchange_

BSO, the global pioneering infrastructure and connectivity provider powering the digital age, announced today it has become an approved international network provider for Brazilian stock exchange B3. 

B3 (Brasil, Bolsa, Balcão), headquartered in São Paulo is the largest exchange in Latin America and BSO is now the lowest-latency vendor registered with the exchange and connecting international traders to the Latin American hub. By strengthening its Latin American offering and widening access to the region, BSO is providing international traders with faster, more cost-effective access to one of the world’s most promising financial services markets.

The connection is bolstered by BSO’s recent introduction of a direct ultra-low latency connectivity route between Brazil and Europe, in partnership with express optical platform EllaLink. The route, the first direct connectivity route between the regions, cuts latency in half making it easier than ever for institutional traders in Europe to connect to the major Brazilian trading hub. The route also opens up a wider range of possibilities for proprietary trading firms, capital banks, hedge funds and other market participants, across multiple asset classes.

Michael Ourabah, CEO of BSO said:
“We are so thrilled to be working with B3 at a strategic level, to put in place ultra-low latency connectivity and infrastructure to help it succeed in its drive to extend its international reach. With our experience in delivering connectivity around the world, BSO is well-placed to help trading participants globally access the B3 exchange and capitalise on the immense opportunities that it offers.” 

Tony Jones, BSO's head of Low Latency said:
“B3 is a strong, thriving market and we are especially delighted to be able to help more European traders access it with the lowest latencies available between the two continents, as they seek to discover alpha strategies for achieving the highest returns” 

“With this partnership, we are now going further establishing direct links between B3 and other exchanges around the world including London, France, Singapore and Turkey.

Claudio Jacob, International Business Development Managing Director at B3, says:
“BSO, with all its connectivity capacity and ultra-low latency infrastructure, will help B3 expand its operations with international investors, who, in turn, can access assets available on one of the most important stock exchanges in the world”

“Bolsa do Brasil is committed to providing a necessary experience for its clients and, therefore, understands the need to continue investing to stay ahead in performance, security, scalability and transparency. This partnership further strengthens our range of connectivity products”
