Australia's Cameron Systems has signed Winterflood Securitites to its FIX engine, CameronFIX, after courting the UK market maker for the past two years.
Winterflood, a subsidiary of the Close Brothers Group, will implement the CameronFIX engine to run alongside its in-house FIX system in order to increase FIX connectivity options for staff.
Cameron Systems says its director of sales, Glenn Cruickshank, has been in contact with Winterflood Securities for the past two years.
Cruickshank says: "During the past two years Winterflood has witnessed first-hand the growth and demands on FIX at both regional and global levels, resulting in their selection of the CameronFIX engine to complement their current in-house FIX solution."
Winterflood will use the CameronFIX Excel system as a trading blotter connected to the CameronFIX Universal Server. Cameron's Routing Hub will be used for routing of trade messages to multiple trading desks. The vendor says Winterflood also plans to deploy its recently-launched browser-based order entry product, CameronFIX NetTrader.
Philip Yarrow, director, Winterflood Securities, comments: "Winterflood selected CameronFIX to achieve fast implementation of a FIX blotter that provides increased efficiencies for the processing of its FIX-based transactions."
