Fidessa Named Best Sell-Side Front-Office Execution Platform

 Fidessa group plc (LSE: FDSA) today announced that its sell-side trading platform has been named Best Sell-Side Front-Office Execution Platform at the third annual Sell-Side Technology Awards, hosted by Waters Technology magazine. These awards recognize the leading technologies and third-party vendors in the sell-side financial technology arena.

Mark Ames, Global Head of Equities at Fidessa, reacted to the award, saying: “We are honored by this recognition from Waters and delighted to see that our ongoing innovation in our sell-side solutions is delivering material benefits to our clients. We are dedicated to continued investment in our sell-side product suite to ensure that we continue to provide the functionality, service and performance our clients need and retain our position as the leading supplier in the industry.”

Significant enhancements were made to Fidessa’s sell-side trading solutions over the last year, including the ability for clients to consolidate multiple trading platforms to provide a seamlessly integrated, single global system for trading, pre-trade risk and middle office. Fidessa will continue to enhance its market-leading system with emphasis on superior performance and system stability. In 2015 and beyond, Fidessa is confident it will sustain its leading position by introducing even more innovative solutions onto their clients' desktops across all asset classes.

Fidessa increased its global market penetration with the addition of around 50 new sell-side trading platform clients in 2014. It also expanded its asset class coverage, which now includes cash equities, equity options, futures & options, commodities and fixed income.

Judged by a committee of media and industry influencers, the awards were presented at the Marriott Marquis in New York City.
