Toronto, May 28th, 2015 – Fidessa group plc (LSE: FDSA) celebrated 10 successful years of operation in the Canadian market today by opening trading on Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX).

“As with all global markets, there has been a tremendous amount of change in Canada over the past decade,” commented Fidessa Canada CEO Martin Hakker. “Moving from a single market to a multi-market landscape, along with numerous regulatory and market changes, have created both challenges and opportunities for our clients. Because we’ve committed ourselves so fully to this marketplace, we’ve been able to provide our clients with solutions and guidance specific to the issues they have faced every day. We’d like to thank them for their support over the past 10 years, which has helped fuel our organic growth, and re-affirm that we remain dedicated to the Canadian marketplace now and going forward.”

Fidessa Canada now serves more than 30 clients representing both the buy-side and sell-side. Its multi-asset solutions are used by asset managers as well as institutional, retail and professional trading firms, and clients range from Canada’s biggest banks – of which Fidessa supports 5 of the top 6 – to smaller, boutique regional firms. With 50 employees based out of its Toronto headquarters, Fidessa Canada provides unrivalled levels of support to its clients across the region.

Later this year, Fidessa Canada will be hosting a knowledge summit, bringing together individuals and firms from across the Canadian financial community, to discuss the state of the market and look toward the future, exploring what the next 10 years may bring.
