Fidessa Named Best Sell-Side OMS


Scoops Markets Choice award in New York

New York, February 25, 2016 – Fidessa group plc (LSE: FDSA) today announced that it has been named Best Sell-side Order Management System (OMS) provider at the 2016 Markets Choice awards. Organised by Markets Media, the awards were presented at a gala dinner hosted at the Highline Ballroom in New York last night.

Jay Biancamano, Head of Equities Product Management for Fidessa in the Americas, who accepted the award, commented: “We are honored to get this award from the financial markets industry. We have added a number of significant new capabilities to our sell-side OMS over the last year through our Optimized Trading Initiative and our Partnership Program. It is good to see this on-going investment in our platform paying off, and great to get recognition like this for all our hard work. We continue to invest in the OMS platform and have further exciting developments in the pipeline. All of this will ensure that we continue to provide the functionality, service and performance our clients need and retain our position as the leading supplier in the industry.”
