Fidessa's derivatives platform wins Trading System of the Year

Takes FOW Asia award for 2nd year running

Singapore, 26th September 2014 – Fidessa group plc (LSE: FDSA) has won Best Sell-side Trading System of the Year for the second year running at the Futures and Options World (FOW) Asia Awards. These awards recognise the best performers and suppliers in the Asian derivatives industry and the winners were announced at a gala dinner in Singapore last night. Fidessa also received the same accolade at FOW's International Awards in London in 2013.

David Jenkins, Head of Business Development for Fidessa in Asia Pacific, said Fidessa had made important strides in the derivatives space in Asia over the past 12 months.

"Fidessa has responded to the increasingly complex Asian derivatives trading landscape by continuing to evolve and enhance its 2013 FOW award-winning trading platform," he said. "We have expanded our advanced order management tools, extended the range of synthetic order types we offer to normalise the trading experience across global markets, and increased the suite of benchmark algorithms we offer too. These new features, coupled with our unmatched global order handling and handover capabilities, mean we continue to be the F&O platform of choice across the region."

Justin Llewellyn-Jones, Global Head of Sell-side Derivatives at Fidessa, added: "To win this FOW award two years in a row is a fantastic testament to the hard work that we have put into our global derivatives platform. The derivatives industry continues to evolve rapidly and we remain committed to innovating and empowering firms with the tools and functionality they need to comply with new practices and regulations, as well as to take advantage of the opportunities that the new landscape provides."

Fidessa's futures & options trading platform is typically delivered as a fully-hosted and managed service, using the firm's proven global technology infrastructure and resilient data centre facilities. The service includes global connectivity to trading venues, buy-sides and other brokers, as well as comprehensive market data and a trans-continental, 24-hour help-desk.
