Geert van der Heyden, Global Head of Fixed Income Trading at Fortis Bank, comments: 'We have chosen ORIMOS for its professional approach, its high quality software and its knowledge of the business reflected by being the market leader amongst the off-the shelf pricing tools.'

Alain de Jonghe, Head of Global Markets Information Services at Fortis Bank, adds: 'ORIMOS is helping us to cope with the ever growing demand for reliable and top performance pricing. The scalability and performance of SONARIS are key for us to ensure our further growth in the fixed income area.
