Michael Crouch, Vice President of Kottke Associates, LLC comments: "While expertise, location and connectivity were all factors in choosing an ISV, we ultimately chose Future Dynamics’ Crossfire trading system because of its flexibility in developing to the unique needs of our client base. In addition, the open API embedded in the application will be key in future business development."

Firms, such as Kottke, who have purchased our systems enhance their marketability towards traders and consistently report an increase in client base, trading volumes and revenues."
