Horizon Software expands presence in the Middle East with the support of Business France

Horizon Software, a provider of electronic trading solutions and algorithmic technology, has partnered with Business France Middle East, to expand the range of services on offer to clients based in the MENA region.

The choice to collaborate with Business France is strategic, and fits into the wider business goals of Horizon, supporting the growth and development of their global presence. Business France will play a major role in strengthening client relationships and facilitating business opportunities for Horizon in the MENA region. This will allow Horizon’s technology to be deployed on a larger scale, providing sophisticated services to a wider range of clients.
 
For the past four years, Horizon Software have invested a tremendous amount of energy in developing the region, led by Damien Jenner, Managing Director and Head of Sales.

As such, Horizon has chosen to collaborate with Business France to enhance their presence in the region. This decision works in conjunction with the next key milestone, which will be to open an office to support clients on a local basis.
