BOSTON – June 01, 2004 – Linedata Services, a leader in global financial technology solutions, announced today that BPI Global Asset Management has chosen Linedata’s LongView Trading to support their global equity trading operations. Based in Orlando, Florida, BPI Global Asset Management provides global, US, and international equity and hedge fund products to Pensions, Endowments, Foundations and Mutual Funds in the US and Canada.
