Fidessa recognised with a hat-trick of awards
Wins for derivatives and equities trading platforms
25th September 2017 - Fidessa group plc (LSE: FDSA) today announced that it has been recognised with three prestigious awards for its sell-side derivatives and equities trading platforms.
The firm collected both Equity Trading System of the Year and Derivatives Trading System of the Year awards at the FOW and Global Investor Asia Capital Markets Awards presented in Singapore last week – the latter for the fifth consecutive year. In addition, Fidessa's derivatives platform was named Best Trading and Execution Technology at the CTA Intelligence European Services Awards, adding to its win in the same category at the CTA US Awards earlier this year.
Fidessa's fully-hosted, high performance workflow platforms connect to 222 markets globally across five asset classes. These allow firms to automate their execution lifecycle to achieve unrivalled levels of control and risk management and so provide the highest levels of execution outcomes for their clients.
Commenting on the awards, Steve Grob, Director of Group Strategy, said: "These awards are more than just accolades, they underline the confidence and trust that the industry as a whole places on Fidessa's technology. We take this responsibility very seriously which is why we continually invest in our people, our processes and our platforms to make them both relevant and sources of competitive edge."
Fidessa supports over 900 clients around the world and its network provides connectivity between more than 6,300 buy-side and sell-side firms, carrying trade flow with a value of US$26 trillion annually.
The capabilities of Fidessa's technology have already been recognised with a clutch of awards this year, including Best Sell-side OMS and Best Cross Asset Trading System in the 2017 Intelligent Trading Technology Awards in June; Markets Media's Market Choice Award for Best Sell-side OMS and Waters Sell-side Technology Award for Best Sell-side Front Office Execution Platform in April; and the CTA Intelligence US Award for Best Trading and Execution Technology in February.
