TNS Expands Eastern European Reach with Connection to Budapest Stock Exchange


The Hungarian Stock Exchange, the ancestor of today’s Budapest Stock Exchange (BSE) started its operation in 1864. Following World War II, after the nationalisation of the majority of private Hungarian firms, the government officially dissolved the Budapest Stock and Commodity Exchange, and the exchange’s assets became state property. After its re-establishment in 1990, the BSE re-opened its doors with 41 founding members.

Business Challenge
The Budapest Stock Exchange (BSE) traditionally used managed leased lines to connect to remote traders around the world – a complicated, expensive and time consuming process. They needed a way to deliver fast, secure and reliable fully managed electronic trading to improve services to their clients.

Transaction Network Services (TNS) has been appointed as the first ever network provider to support the Budapest Stock Exchange with client connectivity services, following its connection to TNS’ Secure Trading Network.

TNS will provide low latency, cost effective and resilient connectivity to both new and existing BSE clients. The deal also provides the BSE with opportunities to connect quickly and easily to other members of TNS’ global community – a capability that will support the growth aspirations of the Hungarian exchange.
