Misys Securities Trading Systems has entered into a marketing partnership with Fujisoft KCS to promote its securities trading platform, Market Trader, to the Japanese market.
Fujisoft KCS is a subsidiary of Fuji Soft ABC, the largest independent software provider in Japan. Under the terms of the agreement, Fujisoft KCS will promote Market Trader to its existing customer base and handle systems integration requirements.
Frank Walter, chief executive officer for Misys Securities Trading Systems, comments: "While Market Trader has proved extremely successful in meeting the trading requirements of many of the international investment banks in Japan, this partnership will provide us with further penetration of the Japanese domestic market, expanding upon a customer base that includes Ichiyoshi Securities and Izumi Securities."
He says the partnership has already won one contract with Maeda Securities, a domestic retail and institutional broker based in Fukuoka City, on the northern coast of Kyushu.
