Today Fidessa group plc revealed that its sell-side platform has been voted Best Order Management System at the 5th Annual Markets Media and Traders Magazine Markets Choice Awards.
With brokers facing ongoing pressures from the global regulatory agenda, the need to achieve efficiencies whilst containing costs and the increasing demands of their buy-side clients for exceptional levels of execution service, Fidessa's platform continues to prove compelling for firms of all sizes and across asset classes.
Providing access to 220 liquidity venues around the world, Fidessa's fully hosted OMS delivers powerful exceptions-based workflow capabilities and fully-integrated visualisation tools that enable brokers to deliver highly competitive high and low touch execution services.
James Blackburn, Global Head of Equities Product Marketing at Fidessa, commented: "It is extremely gratifying to receive this award for the second consecutive year. It is further validation that our ongoing investment in the platform is providing the capabilities that our sell-side clients need to remain relevant in today's highly competitive marketplace."
Fidessa supports over 900 clients and 23,000 users around the world with a network that connects 715 brokers and 5,500 buy-sides and carries order flow with a value of US$20 trillion annually.
This award, presented at a gala dinner hosted by Markets Media and Traders Magazine in New York last night, is the latest accolade for Fidessa's sell-side products and services which have now been recognised with four awards since the start of 2017.
