ACI World Congress, Philippines, 30 May 2006 - Cognotec, a leading provider of FX trading solutions to financial institutions, today announced the launch of its new, next generation solutions platform, Cognotec RealStreamTM. Based on new, leading-edge technology, the first phase of Cognotec RealStream presents Cognotec RealStream-Margin, an integrated web-based solution designed for banks looking to target the increasing growth in flows originating from investors actively trading FX as an asset class.

End-user clients will experience a comprehensive trading suite combining executable streaming rates and order management with full portfolio analysis capabilities providing up-to-the-second market values of positions and P&L.

"By taking a holistic view of both wholesale and margin trading capabilities, financial institutions are able to access more trading channels from a single platform with one pricing engine. It is this efficiency that is helping banks to realise new profit from and increase flow for their eFX business," said Kieran Fitzpatrick, director of strategic solutions at Cognotec. "Cognotec RealStream-Margin positions us as the only technology provider offering a truly integrated web-enabled trading solution that can be used by financial institutions to target all segments of the eFX marketplace.
