Banque Artesia, a subsidiary of the Dexia Group, is installing Reuters' 3000 Xtra and Trader desktop products to support its treasury and private banking operations.
The products were chosen following a competitive review involving pilots of systems from Reuters, Moneyline Telerate and Market XS.
Jos de Wit, director, private banking, Banque Artesia, says the bank had been using a number of older Reuters services and conducted a pilot of systems available in Europe.
"We found that Reuters was able to meet our needs by being able to supply their main flagship system, Reuters 3000 Xtra and their recently introduced, lightweight information product, Reuters Trader. We're very pleased with the result," he says.
Reuters' flagship 3000 Xtra desktop system is a real-time premium data service for financial professionals. Reuters Trader delivers quotes, news, fundamentals, pricing tools, and analytics via an easy to navigate desktop.
