Connecting high-frequency traders to high-growth venues faster than any other provider in the world drives the entire BSO team to keep pushing boundaries by supporting our clients with the very best connectivity on the market.

One of the most recent developments is the optimisation of our ultra low-latency link between the Hong Kong Exchange (HKeX) and the Singapore Exchange (SGX).


Hong Kong

The Hong Kong economy was recently reported to have grown at the fastest pace in six years, with GDP expanding by 4.3% from a combination of a growing property market, strong employment growth, a positive global outlook and, of course, the stock markets.

In 2018, analysts expect to see GDP growth of 2.2%, underpinned by soaring property prices and a rallying stock market.

The growth in Singapore was largely owing to its huge manufacturing sector. Whilst the 2017 total GDP forecast remains unchanged, strong growth is still likely to be on the horizon making it an attractive venue for traders.
