We work hard to develop innovative and robust technology across the buy- and sell-sides, and it is rewarding to see this approach paying off for our clients, and therefore our shareholders. As well as helping clients deal with the changing trading landscape, we have also invested in optimising the functionality of our solution to meet the specific needs of regions such as Asia, Russia, Latin America and the Middle East, and we look forward to building on this success in 2010.”
