MarketXS Provides Amstgeld n.v. Effectenbank With Terminals And Financial Website

Amsterdam/Schiphol-Oost, 17 November 2003 - MarketXS, a leading provider of market data distribution technology and terminal solutions, today announced that Amstgeld n.v. Effectenbank, an established Dutch securities firm since 1938 and part of ING Group, has successfully rolled out MarketXSPro(tm) terminals to its staff. Besides, Amstgeld n.v. Effectenbank has chosen MarketXS to power and host the financial section of its website.

Amstgeld n.v. Effectenbank decided in favor of MarketXS to replace its current market data systems after an extensive comparison with alternative products. These two deals see MarketXS become Amstgeld's principal supplier of financial information.

MarketXSPro for Windows(r), a terminal application for finance professionals, delivers sophisticated analytics and in-depth, real-time information from markets worldwide at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions. It combines comprehensive data and advanced functionality with a fully customizable user interface, an easy, Windows-based, navigation and a full streaming integration with Microsoft(r) Excel. The application obtains data through the Internet or leased lines using the firewall-friendly HTTP protocol, just like a web browser, and requires no additional investments in any local
infrastructure.

MarketXSPro delivers market data and analyses from renowned providers such as ComStock, Reuters, Telekurs, Dow Jones Newswires, Tullett Liberty, ICAP and Standard & Poor's. Available is information on equities, fixed income, foreign exchange, derivatives and money markets. As well as news, analyst research, estimates, recommendations and corporate actions.

Gerard Otten, general manager of Amstgeld n.v. Effectenbank, said: 'After an extensive prescreening we selected the MarketXSPro terminals for a number of reasons: the quick and relatively easy implementation, the completeness and reliability of its data and information, the flexibility and scalability of the system, the quality of support and service and, of course, its competitive pricing. Because of our good experiences and close cooperation we also decided to use MarketXS as a provider and hosting partner for the quote feed to our website.

Floris Alkemade, chief executive officer of MarketXS, commented:
'We were very pleased to see that the roll-out of our MarketXSPro terminals was received so well at Amstgeld that they decided to increase their use of our services almost immediately. It shows MarketXS commitment to its products and clients.'
