What are TradingTech Insights Awards Europe?

The TradingTech Insight Europe Awards recognise excellence in trading solutions and services for capital markets. A-Team Group’s editors judged the awards in collaboration with an Advisory Board formed of market specialists. Winning providers supply exceptional trading infrastructure, trading technology and data solutions, thereby enabling market practitioners and suppliers to overcome the challenges they face in a rapidly changing marketplace.

The award winners were announced on 25th January 2021.



The award for Best High-Performance Network Services 

The Best High-Performance Network Services category is for vendors providing low-latency network services for trading connectivity. To be nominated and shortlisted for this award was a great achievement and to come out on top is a real badge of honour. BSO was praised for its technology solutions, services and consultancy to capital markets. 



The TradingTech Insights Awards Europe judging panel

The judging panel commended BSO for its market expertise, technical innovation and ability to provide the capital markets with mission-critical infrastructure that it can depend on. BSO’s global network reaches 33 countries, 85 cities, and over 250 data centre locations, connecting all major trading venues and exchanges across Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, and North America.

The judges particularly hailed BSO’s customer experience and noted that implementing infrastructure intelligently requires a bespoke, consultative approach which cannot be achieved solely through product features and technical capabilities.

Michael Ourabah, Chief Executive Officer at BSO, said the following about our success in the 2021 TradingTech Insights Awards Europe: 

“In addition to resilient, ultra-low latency connectivity, financial firms need specialist advice to orchestrate their specialist infrastructure and fulfil their organisational needs. Nowhere is this more evident than in the capital markets. Receiving this award is an honour and endorses our decades-long heritage in financial services.”


Andrew Delaney, President of the A-Team Group, who hosted the TradingTech Insight Awards Europe 2021, congratulated BSO on our success: 

“Our awards recognise leading providers of trading technology solutions, services and consultancy to capital markets and BSO has proven to be worthy winners of this prestigious title. We congratulate BSO on winning the Best High-Performance Network Services in recognition for the continuing excellence in the trading technology space.”



Building on the successes of 2020

This recent award at the annual TradingTech Insight Awards Europe event follows our awards success achieved in 2020. Last year, we picked up several nominations in industry awards ceremonies, including the Global Carrier Awards, the Asia Capital Markets Awards and the previous year’s TradingTech Insights Awards. Plus, we won Connectivity Provider of the Year at the FOW Global Investor International Awards 2020

To go one better than last year in the TradingTech Insight Awards and win in the category ‘Best High Performing Network Services’ gives us great pride and is recognition for the team’s continued hard work and perseverance.




The TradingTech Insight Awards Europe are well respected in the industry and it’s great to add this prestigious award to our collection of awards and commendations. We’re proud of our successes and it rewards the team’s hard work and demonstrates our dedication to providing continued excellence in trading solutions and services for capital markets.
