Fidessa group (LSE:FDSA), provider of award winning trading, compliance, market data and global connectivity solutions for the buy-side and sell-side, has today announced that Brewin Dolphin, one of the largest independent private client investment managers in the UK, has taken Fidessa's market data workstation to replace its incumbent Thomson Markets service.
Fidessa's workstation has been deployed to more than 700 users at Brewin Dolphin.
The Fidessa market data workstation provides access to comprehensive market information and news. Users have access to real-time international equity prices, world indices, sectors, derivatives, commodities and foreign exchange rates as well as financial news and market commentaries from Dow Jones. Users of the workstation also receive comprehensive company background and fundamental data along with broker estimates and recommendations.
David McCorkell, Director and Head of Investment Management at Brewin Dolphin Ltd, says: "We have been a client of Fidessa's since 2005, and the strong relationship between the two firms was a key factor in considering its market data workstation. However, it was the depth of the market data, the functionality and the competitive price that were the deciding factors. In addition, users were extremely comfortable with the look and feel of the product which will help ensure a smooth transition onto the service."
Julian Garcia-Santos, Head of Client Marketing for European Hosted Services at Fidessa, says: "Our market data workstation is powerful, comprehensive and affordable. The depth and breadth of coverage, coupled with a range of sophisticated monitoring and analysis tools empower users to make better, faster and more effective decisions. We're seeing increased demand for this solution as users seek a functionally rich and competitively priced market data solution. Its implementation at Brewin Dolphin is testament to its leading position in the UK marketplace."
