US-based Bulltick Capital Markets, whose geographic footprint extends across Latin America, has joined Fidessa Group's connectivity network. Fidessa is a UK-based provider of trading systems, market data and global connectivity to buy-sides and sell-sides.

The move will allow Bulltick to provide an increased range of Latin American trading and execution services to Fidessa’s global user base within the equities markets. The partnership will assist Bulltick with trade flow and volume into Latin America’s diverse markets, claims Fidessa.

Alejandro Creixell, managing partner at Bulltick, said: “As international investors seek to increase their exposure in Latin American markets, we needed a world-class provider such as Fidessa to support rapidly growing requirements for our execution services. This partnership enables us to provide the most innovative solutions to the regional and global financial community.”

Alice Botis, head of business development for Latin America at Fidessa, said: “We pride ourselves on partnering with firms like Bulltick: one of the industry’s most innovative players. We are seeing a huge surge of activity in terms of institutions joining our connectivity network in the Latin American region. With increasing numbers of buy and sell side firms predicted to set up operations in the region over the next two years, we are committed to ensuring our technology develops along with the market and its participants.”
