TD Waterhouse orders 125 Proquote screens
Proquote Limited, the London Stock Exchange's trading system and market data business, announced today that it has secured one of its largest ever contracts, selling 125 screens to broker TD Waterhouse.
TD Waterhouse, the UK's largest execution-only broker, is replacing the screens in its Manchester and Leeds offices with Proquote View and Proquote Trader screens, which give access to a Retail Service Provider platform carrying price information from major Market Makers.
The TD Waterhouse contract takes the number of Proquote's corporate clients to 102. It also means that TD Waterhouse is Proquote’s second biggest corporate customer behind Gerrards.
Around 500 Proquote screens have been ordered this year alone by customers such as Charles Stanley, Investec Henderson Crosthwaite, Prudential Bache, Hichens Harrison, MacArthur & Company, and Ramsey Crookall.
Angus Rigby, Senior Vice President at TD Waterhouse, said:
"We are committed to providing a superior level of service and this investment in Proquote screens will allow us to continue to offer the best trading services for our clients."
David Lester, CIO at the London Stock Exchange, said:
"I am delighted that TD Waterhouse has chosen Proquote to provide their trading and market data systems. There is growing demand for reasonably-priced but functional trading and market data systems, and Proquote is significantly ahead of its competitors in this market."
Proquote is the UK's fastest growing trading and market data business, supplying a competitively priced, browser-based product that allows market professionals to access real time price data and market information, as well as trade online.
The Exchange acquired the company in January 2003 and it is now run as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Exchange.
