TheMarkets.com Named to Institutional Investor's Online Finance 40 Ranking, Recognizing Leadership in the e-Finance Industry

30 January 2009

TheMarkets.com, a leading provider of research, estimates and workflow solutions to institutional investors worldwide, announced today that its CEO and President David Eisner has been named, for the fourth year in a row, to Institutional Investor Magazine’s Online Finance 40. The annual ranking recognizes leadership in the e-finance marketplace. Eisner features in the 2008 ranking along with e-finance leaders including Mark Interrante, General Manager of Yahoo!Finance, and Paul Galant, CEO of Global Transaction Services at Citigroup.

“We are honored once again this year to have received this accolade from Institutional Investor,” said Eisner. “Over the past twelve months, we’ve achieved a number of landmarks that make this especially meaningful for us. I share this recognition with my incredibly dedicated and hard-working colleagues, as well as our broker-partners who have showed continued and growing support for our company.” Key landmarks included:

• Quadrupling revenues over the three-year period ending in 2007

• Deployment at 2000th buy-side firm

• 94% client retention rate

• Launch of Meeting Tracker, a calendaring tool enabling buy-side clients to manage their broker meetings in an online system featuring broker-provided data

“In addition to significant achievements like these, we also recently embarked on an initiative to obtain content directly from contributors other than the brokers who own us,” he said. “We look forward to the coming year, during which we plan several initiatives that will meaningfully enhance the services we provide our clients—and support an even higher ranking in 2009!”

Institutional Investor's Online Finance 40 ranks the top executives and innovators in the world of financial technology. This year's ninth annual Online 40 listing highlights influential leaders in such areas of e-finance as electronic trading, banking, transaction processing and data management, many of them on or using the technology of the Internet.
