Wataru Sato, Trading Section Manager for the Corporate Department at Toyo Securities, comments: “With the new system we will further improve our algorithmic trading service, especially our direct strategy access (DSA) offering. We continue to strive to meet the diverse needs of our users by providing faster and more accurate trading services to our existing clients, as well as to new clients, who we hope to acquire through our service expansion.”
According to the press release, the increasingly complex and liquid Japanese trading environment has meant that brokerages have sought greater functionality from their front-end systems.
Fidessa has clearly been one winner from the situation, allowing it to further extend its reach into Asia. Indeed, today’s announcement comes on the back of announcements in February and May of recent Fidessa successes in China.
