TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 18, 2007) - Credit Suisse's AES (Advanced Execution Services) and Perimeter Financial Corp. are pleased to announce that BlockBook has been added as the latest destination for Canadian algorithms. "At Credit Suisse AES, we believe that clients benefit from smart order routing to innovative destinations like BlockBook," said Julie El-Taher, AES Sales at Credit Suisse. "As Canada becomes a multi-destination market like the US and Europe, we are excited about BlockBook's potential to enhance liquidity and reduce market impact for AES clients."
