RS Platou Markets, the investment banking arm of RS Platou Group, has selected Fidessa's software-as-a-service (SaaS) sell-side trading platform.

The Norway-based brokerage firm will be using Fidessa to underpin its global trading operations including connectivity to a number of MTFs.

RS Platou equity sales co-heads Preben Sohlberg and Magnus Halvorsen said the rationale behind the decision was that Fidessa offered a SaaS solution that fitted the company’s needs allowing it to focus on our core competence.

“In addition, Fidessa offered access to a large buy-side network that is in line with our profile and provided a platform that will allow us to service our global network,” Sohlberg and Halvorsen said.
