Boston, January 17, 2006 - Linedata Services, a leading provider of software and services to the global financial services marketplace, today announced that First Citizens Bank has selected LongView Trading, LongView LyNX and Linedata Compliance, to support its Capital Management Group.

To support the bank’s Capital Management Group operations, a comprehensive front-office solution was required to provide portfolio management, pre- and post-trade compliance and trading, including FIX connectivity. First Citizens Bank reviewed several of the leading systems in the marketplace and selected Linedata Services’ front-office suite as the best fit for their needs in terms of technical infrastructure, connectivity, functionality, and rapid implementation timescales.

Eric Bernstein, senior vice president and head of US front-office sales for Linedata Service, Inc, commented, "Moving to an electronic trade order management system with enhanced compliance monitoring will allow FCB to more easily manage their growing business requirements.
