The Fidessa group, a provider of multi-asset trading systems, market data and global connectivity, has won the Readers’ Choice Award for the best trading platform/order management product at this year’s European Banking Technology Awards.

Trading is provided through Fidessa’s global FIX connectivity network with access to 83 equity and derivatives exchanges, 230 brokers and 1,300 buy-side institutions.
Now in their eighth year, the European Banking Technology awards are designed to reflect excellence across a range of IT fields. The Readers’ Choice Awards were launched this year to enable users to vote for what they consider to be the best systems in a range of categories.
‘We are delighted to accept this award and are particularly pleased that our winning position in this category was the result of readers’ votes,’ says Philip Slavin, Fidessa’s head of European product strategy.
‘We have strengthened our trading platform over the past year or so with the addition of a number of new features: the ability to trade multiple assets on a single low-latency platform; the introduction of our fully-integrated algorithmic management system, Bluebox, and the launch of a new suite of products with full MiFID compliance.’
