New York, December 3, 2015 – Fidessa group plc (LSE: FDSA) today announced that it has integrated Hanweck Associate’s VoleraFEED™ into its award-winning sell-side equities trading platform to provide users with access to high-performance options analytics. VoleraFEED is recognized as the industry’s leading options analytics service.

"The seamless integration of Hanweck’s options analytics and Greeks within our platform further enhances our ability to deliver the highest quality, best practice services to our clients," said Joy Rosenstein, VP of Equity Options Product Management for Fidessa.
