We’re honoured to announce that BSO has been recognised at the 2018 Intelligent Trading Technology Awards for the second consecutive year, winning the Best High-Performance Network Services award.

The second annual ITT Awards honours the best in the industry at trading technology within capital markets. The ceremony covers trading technology approaches and trends, with an audience of industry members which included senior-level decision makers, vendors, and consultants. ITT logo

The award comes as a result of our continued investment in our low-latency, high-performance global network. With nearly fifteen years in the industry, we have a proven track record of providing high-performance connectivity services to over 300 customers in the financial trading community, including one of the oldest and largest independent futures brokerage and clearing firms in the market, R.J. O’Brien.

It’s been a busy year for BSO. Recent months have seen us integrate leading wireless microwave connectivity provider Apsara Networks into our global fibre network, expand into new offices in Dubai, Hong Kong and Singapore, and partner with major industry players including the CME Group and software provider Emagine supporting our customers time-stamping software for MiFID II compliance.

Michael Ourabah, CEO, is honoured by this distinction, commenting:

“We are proud to be recognised by members of the financial community as the industry’s premier high-performance network provider. This prestigious award represents BSO’s growing leadership in the space, and as our recent partnerships show, some of the biggest names in the business trust us to provide superior connectivity to their customers as they grow their global reach.”

Being recognised by the financial trading community for two consecutive years is humbling and we’d like to extend a warm thank you to everyone who voted. The award solidifies our position as a top provider of electronic trading connectivity to the financial trading community.
