Fidessa group plc (LSE:FDSA), the leading provider of trading systems, market data and global connectivity, today announced that it has been voted Best Sell-side Order Management System (OMS) in the 2009 annual Waters magazine readers’ rankings. This marks the second straight year Fidessa has won top honors in the category.

Used by over 85% of tier-one, global brokers, Fidessa’s sell-side OMS provides a resilient and robust solution for trading the world’s financial markets. Fidessa can also provide a full range of advanced trading tools fully integrated within the OMS, including analytics, pairs and program trading, as well as its industry leading BlueBox algorithmic engine. Fidessa’s powerful trading systems provide clients with comprehensive compliance and reporting capabilities along with robust middle office functionality.

Martin Hakker, EVP marketing at Fidessa North America, said: “It is an honor for Fidessa to have been selected by the industry for this award for a second straight year, and we would like to say thank you to everyone who has voted. It’s great to be recognized for the effort we put into anticipating our clients' needs and providing solutions that enable their businesses to grow in a cost effective and efficient manner.”

Contributing to Fidessa's success has been the ability to offer its global client base unparalleled customer support with 24-hr "follow-the-sun" helpdesk and support services. Because Fidessa's regional trading platforms are built on the same underlining architecture and infrastructure, clients can be assured that their needs are understood and met regardless of the region or time zone they operate in.

Hakker adds: “Fidessa continues to put its clients' goals at the forefront of all its efforts in developing cutting-edge trading solutions. We understand quite clearly that this approach has been, and will continue to be, the primary driver behind Fidessa’s innovation. Our dynamic, global client base is continually expanding its trading capabilities into new markets, new regions and across new asset classes, and this has led Fidessa to establish an industry-leading, global platform that can be tailored to meet each clients' specific needs.
