New York – 20 August 2007

Fidessa group plc (LSE: FDSA), the world-leading supplier of trading, market data and global connectivity, received top ranking in four categories in the annual Kimsey Consulting US Tri-State Trading Technology Study.

Fidessa took the top spot over all in reliability of data, value for money, and customer relations, according to the report. “At Fidessa we consider the support of our customers and their systems and processes to be as important as our software and service itself. We offer unrivalled levels of support and service that satisfy the highest demands of over 85% of tier-1 equity brokers globally.” says Martin Hakker, EVP of Marketing at Fidessa.

In addition, Fidessa was also ranked first among the independent service providers in speed of information. Fidessa’s trading solutions scored highly overall primarily because trading desks are increasingly looking for a hybrid solution that can address multiple needs from one desktop application, the report noted. Kimsey’s research is based on 150 interviews with firms in the Tri-State area that collectively support 20,000 trading positions and 6,000 off-trading floor users of data and trading-related software.

“The results of the Kimsey Report are testament to Fidessa’s ongoing success both in product development and superior customer service and demonstrates Fidessa’s commitment to providing the financial markets with a truly first-class solution. Fidessa provides robust, scalable, low latency solutions that address the numerous and diverse needs that traders have in today’s increasingly complex global markets,” said Hakker.
