2 November 2007

Representatives of more than 30 of Fidessa LatentZero’s key clients from North America and Europe met in Boston at the fourth annual client conference. The event proved to be the largest gathering to date, and presented delegates with an opportunity to attend presentations from Fidessa LatentZero’s senior management and product management on company vision and product direction.

The conference kicked off with keynote addresses from Fidessa LatentZero CEO Richard Jones, and Mark Ames, CEO of Fidessa in North America. Lunchtime keynotes were also given by Michael Pusateri, CTO of Highland Capital on ‘Bank loans explained - structure and processing,’ and Beth-Ann Coleman, Compliance Director at Nicholas Applegate Capital Management on ‘Recent changes in investment compliance and resulting challenges.’

Break out sessions were split into business and technical tracks, with attendees able to attend introductory and advanced training on the key functionality on all Fidessa LatentZero products. Moderated discussions were also held on Fidessa LatentZero’s award-winning EMS, the use of alternative instruments and the impact of regulatory changes.

Brian MacDonald, VP of Technology at Legg Mason said: “The user conference has been a great opportunity for clients to share best practices. It was great to see Fidessa LatentZero’s executive staff and product managers working closely with their clients - a testament to the company’s focus on ensuring they are building products their clients need in this fast changing environment.”

Cindy Arcari, Director of North American Sales and Client Management at LatentZero said: “The user group was a huge success. I was delighted that so many clients attended to present, network and share best practice. Equally encouraging was the clients’ enthusiastic response to Fidessa LatentZero’s company and product plans. It was an extremely constructive, positive and highly enjoyable event.”
