BSO Network Solutions to Open New Hong Kong Office
The announcement follows an increase in the number of organisations that are planning to circumvent the economic downturn in Europe by maximising their profits in more lucrative emerging markets abroad. Combined with a period of significant deregulation in both the financial services sector and the Asian labour market, these factors have opened the door for companies in Europe and increased the number of opportunities available to them in the area.
The office, which will officially open on March 1, 2013, will offer sales, marketing and technical support to existing customers based in Hong Kong (including Ffastfill, Sucden, Marex Spectron) and prospects in Hong Kong and across APAC. The news is the latest phase of an extensive investment programme that BSO Network Solutions has undertaken across Asia. In the past 18 months BSO Network Solutions hasinvested more than £1 million in creating new low latency routes in Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan, with a view to building its presence in the region.
BSO Network Solutions already offers the lowest latency route from London to Hong Kong, with a market leading latency of sub 174ms round trip delay (RTD), and plans to reduce this even further to sub 160ms RTD by the end of the year.
“Increased deregulation in the Asian market has resulted in a significant number of new financial exchanges opening, and we’ve already seen a wealth of opportunities for European businesses as a result,” explained Fraser Bell, International Managing Director of BSO Network Solutions. “This expansion and continued investment in our global business practices ensures that we remain the leader in global network services provision, and demonstrates that we have the capability to meet this increased demand by delivering services to customers based in the Asia Pacific region.
“Additionally, with having highly skilled people in our Hong Kong office we expect our business solutions to add value to Asian companies wanting to operate globally and use our skills, knowledge, technology and expertise to gain the competitive edge required to grow profitable revenues”
