BST Awards 2016 Winners' Interview: Fidessa

John Brazier speaks to Fidessa's Richard Hooke about Fidessa Sentinel's continued domination in the BST Awards, and the changes the vendor has in the pipeline for next year.

Fidessa has won the best buy-side compliance product on more occasions than any other provider, and this year’s success — its second consecutive win in this highly competitive category — further underscores its position as the premier provider of compliance products and services to the buy side. John Brazier speaks to Fidessa's Richard Hooke about the win and what's in store on the compliance front for 2017.

The key to delivering any successful product across the capital markets is to listen to and understand clients' needs, and deliver a platform designed specifically to address those needs.

In this respect, Fidessa is planning on rolling out a new feature ─ event risk functionality ─ on the platform over the coming months, a unique type of risk measurement, which examines whether a possible key event could have consequences to firms' investment strategies, a discussion topic among the vendor's client base.

John Brazier speaks to Richard Hooke about what's in store for 2017 and how Sentinel is primed to address the buy side's compliance needs in what is certain to be a busy year from a compliance perspective.
