BSO launches market-leading FX trading routes between Tokyo, London and Singapore_

Global pioneering infrastructure and connectivity provider, BSO, has today announced it will upgrade its Tokyo to London and Tokyo to Singapore connectivity routes. The routes are available from November to new and existing customers, offering market-leading connectivity between the three major equities and FX hubs.

Achieving fast connectivity between London and Tokyo has long been a challenge for telco providers and so this upgrade solves an important problem. Tokyo is a key section of the FX arbitrage triangle between Europe and Asia and the revamped routes build on BSO’s award-winning global trading network to deliver more resilient and even lower latency networks.

The new routes also extend BSO’s recent enhancements to its connectivity links across high-growth hubs in Asia including Shanghai and Hong Kong.

Michael Ourabah, CEO of BSO:
“Connecting financial traders to the complex Asian landscape is an ongoing challenge, but when demand for connectivity from our customers grow, we rise to the challenge and push the limits of our networks to keep pace. Over the past year we’ve made continual improvements to our routes connecting major Asian financial hubs to other hubs around the world, cementing our market-leading position.”

Tony Jones, Head of Low Latency Strategy, BSO:
“Our investment in these Tokyo routes is yet again another demonstration of our continued commitment to providing the FX trading community with resilient and competitive access to Asian markets and one of the busiest FX circuits in the world.”
