Tokai Tokyo Securities goes live with Fidessa’s Asian trading platform

Fidessa’s Jean-Pierre Baron said the investment in infrastructure and quality of service makes its Asian platform “a natural choice for firms.”

Tokai Tokyo Securities has officially gone live with Fidessa’s Asian trading platform in Hong Kong.

After using Fidessa’s system for years in Japan, Nishida Tadahiko, director and president at Tokai Tokyo said, “it was a natural move for us to extend usage in the Asia region.”

Managing director at Fidessa, Jean-Pierre Baron, said it has invested heavily in infrastructure and quality of service.

Baron claimed these investments place Fidessa’s Asian trading platform “as the natural choice for firms wishing to rationalise systems and off-load their operations to a proven professional vendor.”

Fidessa has made a number of in-roads in the Asia Pacific region, following the mandate with Huatai Financial Holdings last month for Fidessa’s order management system (OMS).

Fidessa’s Asian trading platform now has over 25 local and international users and offers algorithmic trading, pre- and post-trade risk management and trade analytics and charting.
