Meet BSO at Euro Finance Week Frankfurt 2018

Frankfurt has long been the symbol of financial strength and stability in Europe, and the eyes of the world are on the city in the wake of the fast-approaching March 2019 Brexit deadline. Both opportunities and challenges lie ahead from regulatory developments and the fast-growing Asian and US markets.

The German city has the potential to snatch London’s euro clearing business, which would further strengthen it as the financial centre of Europe. But does Frankfurt have the capacity to build the network infrastructure needed to support these activities?

Last year, the European Central Bank (ECB) released a telling report revealing that undersea cables about the diameter of a skateboard wheel are vital to the competitive strength of financial centres. The same study also claimed that taking euro trading from London post Brexit would involve building a “similarly-sized network of cables on the continent.”

The week in Frankfurt will shed light on these challenges, as well as cover topics ranging from regulation to digitalisation and asset management, we’re looking forward to hearing more.

So come by stand 3 to speak to IT finance professional Vassilios Moutsos and European Sales Director Thomas Lanaute about how you can optimise your network connectivity for your business.
