Royal Blue, the provider of the Fidessa trading and connectivity technology, says Fischer Partners, an equity broker in the Scandinavian markets, has added its non-member trading facilities to Fidessa’s network.
Fischer Partners joins a multi-broker order routing network which offers connectivity to a number of major brokers, including Credit Agricole Cheuvreux, Refco (Paris), Carax, and Calyon Securities (US).
Fischer Partners provides direct access to all the Nordic markets.
Commenting on the agreement, Lars Jerlin, head of equities for Fischer Partners, says: “Fidessa provides a valuable community of users to whom we can provide our market-leading Nordic exchange trading services. We view this as the start of a long term and successful collaboration for Fidessa, Fischer Partners and end-users alike.”
Simon Barnby, business development manager for Fidessa, adds: “We are very pleased to add coverage of these markets through Fischer Partners. Scandinavian market access is in high demand and this relationship delivers on our strategy to add key regional expertise for our users.”
Access to the Fidessa order routing network is available from the Fidessa Trading Platform and Fidessa Workstation platforms, or through direct FIX network connectivity.
