We’ve optimised the speed across our London to Tokyo route as currency traders escalate their demands for faster trading.

Great news! Our latest upgrade will affect the London-Tokyo part of our established FX triangle, providing traders with the lowest latency on the market.

Did you know that Tokyo witnessed FX turnover of $399 billion last year, according to the Bank of International Settlements (BIS)?

The revamped route means even lower latency, which empowers our growing FX client base to increase the volume of trades they can execute through the network.

Our commitment to consistently enhancing our circuit ensures clients can quickly adjust to the continuing electronification of FX markets less than five months out from MiFID II.

Having the lowest possible latency across our leading London-Tokyo route is a must for the international trading community

“In the fast-paced world of FX, time is literally money. This is why having the lowest possible latency across our leading London-Tokyo route is a must for the international trading community. Every millisecond counts, and with MiFID II just around the corner, the voice to computer-based trading shift is gathering increasing momentum,” says Fraser Bell, Chief Revenue Officer at BSO.

“We are always pushing the limits of our network to keep pace with the changes to market infrastructure, which is why we provide ultra low-latency connectivity on one of the busiest FX circuits in the world.” Bell concluded.
