Fidessa group plc (LSE:FDSA), provider of high performance trading systems, market data and global connectivity for the buy-side and sell-side, today announced that Danske Bank has selected its sell-side trading platform to support its equity trading business.

Danske Bank will adopt Fidessa's managed enterprise model which will provide them with access to a highly sophisticated workflow platform delivered through a fully hosted infrastructure. This proximity-hosted solution is deployed, operated and managed by Fidessa's own specialist team. Danske Bank will be Fidessa's first managed enterprise client in the region, following a series of other high-profile customer wins across the Nordics.

Fidessa's trading platform will be the technology infrastructure for Danske Bank's institutional trading desk, as well as providing the platform for the execution of its retail flow. Danske Bank will be able to leverage Fidessa's low-latency DMA technology, combining connectivity and routing to multiple venues across Europe.

Kim Lilmose, COO at Danske Markets, Equities commented: "We found Fidessa to be the best front office trading solution out there, and so we are excited to be working with them going forward. Fidessa's deployment model gives us the flexibility we need. It delivers a high performance platform that is both scalable and resilient while allowing us to focus on developing new services and making these available to our clients quickly and efficiently."

Rajiv Shah, Enterprise Services Director EMEA, at Fidessa said: "Working with an organisation of Danske Bank's scale, reach and reputation is of significant strategic importance to us. We have established a local hosting facility in the region, giving Danske Bank proximity access to its domestic markets. This is a further sign of our ongoing commitment to the region, and the continued popularity of the managed enterprise model globally."
