6. Fidessa Group

Fidessa group is a world-leading supplier of multi-asset trading, portfolio analysis, decision support, investment compliance, market data and global connectivity solutions for both the buy-side and sell-side globally.

The corporation is based in Woking with regional offices in cities including London, New York, Chicago, Boston, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Paris, Toronto, San Francisco, Belfast, Singapore, Bahrain, Sydney and São Paulo. Fidessa has continued to deliver strong growth despite the disruption and dislocation across the markets caused by the global financial crisis. The market impact of this crisis, including the failure of Lehman Brothers, the collapse of the Icelandic banks and the number of emergency mergers and rescues within the banking sector during 2008, has been without precedent. In 2008 Fidessa continued the expansion of the Fidessa Connectivity Network adding more destinations, new geographic coverage and further asset-class support. The number of connected parties has increased by nearly 50%, with over 7,700 connections across 360 brokers, 2,200 buy-sides and 115 markets around the globe. The company is currently listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a part of the FTSE 250 Index. In addition to a trade platform, Fidessa also hosts a dealer neutral FIX-enabled implementation network. This has a huge number of brokers linked to it and is comparable to other in-house FIX networks, such as the LSE Hub, the SunGard Transaction Network (STN) and Thomson Reuters subsidiary
