GREAT NECK, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--

FlexTrade Systems, a global leader in multi-asset algorithmic execution management systems, today announced it has been named, for the fourth time, "Best Vendor for Algorithmic Trading Technology" by the readers of FX Week.

The award was given as part of FX Week's 16th annual Best Banks Awards Dinner, which was held in London on November 16. Results of the awards were based on surveys of several thousand FX market professionals in August and September 2010.

"It's a genuine honor to be chosen once again for this award," said Vijay Kedia, president and CEO of FlexTrade Systems, Inc. "It's our fourth time in five years. And what gives it special weight is it is based on a survey of our peers in the FX market. It's a solid affirmation of our ongoing commitment to excellence and providing cutting edge trading platforms to traders on both the buy- and sell-side."
