Fidessa Joins NYSE Euronext’s ‘Power Partners’ Program
Benefitting from Enhanced Cooperation and Visibility as a Premier ‘Three-Portal’ Member

NEW YORK, Jan. 13, 2012 – NYSE Euronext today announced that Fidessa is the latest “three portal” member to join its innovative Power Partners ProgramTM.   The program highlights vendors that partner effectively with NYSE Euronext to better serve mutual customers and consistently provide the highest levels of functionality, responsiveness and unique innovation achieved through the relationship.

Fidessa Group PLC is a provider of high-performance trading, investment management and information solutions for the world's financial community.  Approximately 85% of the world's premier financial institutions use Fidessa products and services, including a global trading community of buy-side and sell-side professionals, from global institutions and investment banks to boutique brokers and niche hedge funds.

“The addition of Fidessa as a three-portal Power Partner further strengthens the program and reaffirms our dedication to working with the industry’s best companies and vendors to create relationships that truly benefit our customers,” said Janna Hodge, Senior Vice President, Relationship Management.

“Attaining this level of recognition from NYSE Euronext is something we are extremely proud of,” said Justin Llewellyn-Jones, COO, Fidessa. “Being awarded prestigious status as a “three portal” member of NYSE’s Power Partners program demonstrates Fidessa’s commitment to providing the highest level of service and the sophisticated products necessary to excel in this global marketplace. We always put our customers first and their business needs drive us to search out partnership opportunities like this one with other world class financial services companies.”

Inclusion in the Power Partners Program is based on customers’ usage of NYSE Euronext markets and NYSE Technologies data, products and services.  Applicants are evaluated based on criteria specific to their business type.  The program is currently available to U.S. data vendors, broker-dealers, retail broker-dealers, order management systems, execution management systems, broker systems, service bureaus and technologies distributors and resellers.

Power Partner designations range from one to three portals; the more criteria met, the higher the number of portals and the greater the marketing rewards for the Power Partner.  Marketing rewards include varying levels of advertising opportunities, visibility at Trader Forums, public relations, and recognition on NYSE Euronext websites.
