Heavy investment in the Japanese capital incites increasing demand from low-latency traders.

Following high demand from global financial institutions and high-frequency trading firms trading between London and Tokyo, we have recently optimised our low-latency network route linking exchanges in Tokyo and London to offer the lowest latency available on the market.


The optimisation from London Interxion to AT TOKYO CC1 offers an impressively low latency with plans to further optimise the route in the coming months.

BSO customers can also trade on the markets’ leading FX triangle direct from Equinix TY3, accessible from CC1 via our low-latency dark fibre metro ring, designed specifically for financial organisations.

Tokyo has often been seen as more closed-off to the worlds’ financial institutions than other financial hubs in the region, but the future looks bright for the capital city as Tokyo’s governor Yuriko Koike launched a campaign at the end of last year to reverse this preconception and establish Tokyo as Asia’s leading financial capital, attempting to rival Singapore, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

Being home to the headquarters of more Fortune 500 companies than any other city in the world, Tokyo certainly has the potential.

And if the recent announcement from the Financial Times that Japans’ GDP has scored its longest growth run in over a decade is anything to go by, governor Koike’s ambition may well be realised.
