Graham O’Loughlin, equity sales trader at Cornhill Asset Management comments: "We were keen to find a reliable, resilient platform for our real-time market data needs and wanted a supplier with a proven track record and class-leading support. We chose to migrate to Fidessa Workstation as it met all our requirements: it provides rich functionality, state-of-the-art front end displays and a highly competitive pricing model.”
