BT makes the digital possible for the New York Stock Exchange

Seventeen-year partnership goes from strength to strength

In this video Harry Weber, Managing Director, Trading Floor Services at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and Jim Hughes, Head of Sales, Global Banking at BT, talk about some of the achievements during seventeen years of working together.

Looking forward, BT continues to invest in research and development to meet the specific challenges of worldwide financial markets. This gives clients such as the NYSE innovative and secure tools to communicate effectively under the busiest global market conditions.


Technology is at the centre of everything we do. As such our choice of technology partners is key. BT introduced their services here seventeen years ago and I’ve had the pleasure of working with them since that time.”
