"Linedata Services was chosen for this award on the strength of its buy-side track record and the quality and breadth of its offerings spanning the front- and back-offices," said Victor Anderson, Editor, Buy-Side Technology. "Not only does it cover the entire range from LongView Trading for front-office, Icon for fund accounting, Linedata Compliance and Beauchamp Hedge Fund Solutions for alternative investments, but it continues to expand its offering, most recently adding Linedata Risk Analytics to complement its existing product set. Significantly, Linedata Services has a strong reputation for outstanding customer service, an increasingly important competitive edge in these turbulent times."
"We place great emphasis on customer satisfaction, especially during these difficult times for financial markets, both by continuous improvements to existing products and by adding new products, such as Linedata Risk Analytics, as the need arises," added David BilbÃ©, Managing Director, Linedata Services Northern Europe.
"We are honoured to be named the best buy-side technology vendor" commented Anvaraly Jiva, CEO and Chairman of Linedata Services." This is one of the most important awards for us because it endorses our strategy based on being the best provider offering a complete set of best-of-breed software products, spanning front- to back-office."
The awards were presented on November 7, 2008 during the Buy-Side Technology Awards luncheon at The Lanesborough Hotel in London.
