Jun 05, 2007, 01:00 ET from Acai Solutions

    NEW YORK, and LONDON, June 5 /PRNewswire/ -- New York based Acai
 Solutions (www.acaisolutions.com) and London based Atlantic Link
 (www.atlantic-link.com), two fast growing consultancies exclusively serving
 the global capital markets industry, today announced a strategic alliance
 to better serve their global clients. New York and London are two of the
 world's main centers of capital markets trading and market innovation, and
 together Acai Solutions and Atlantic Link will be able to offer clients a
 more global perspective and associated services to plan, manage, and
 implement global solutions.
     Acai Solutions and Atlantic Link both specialize in providing deeply
 skilled and experienced Business and IT consulting resources to plan and
 execute projects in the front, middle, and back offices of buy- and
 sell-side clients. Both firms have witnessed strong demand from their
 existing and prospective clients for services which span the 2 financial
 centers. Both companies have also been developing strategic third party and
 preferred integrator relationships with software and data content vendors
 requiring them to provide more geographically dispersed services.
     Bill Cline, CEO of Acai Solutions and previously head of the global
 Capital Markets practice at Accenture, said, "We discovered that we shared
 a common vision with Atlantic Link in our approach, our market focus, the
 types of engagements we were undertaking, and even the third party vendors
 and global clients we were working with. In order to serve our global Tier
 1 clients more effectively and holistically, it was both strategically
 sound and expedient to form a meaningful alliance with Atlantic Link."
     "Eric Werner, co-founding partner of Atlantic Link
 (www.atlantic-link.com), commented "Our clients, both market participants
 and vendors, have expressed a strong desire to use Atlantic Link caliber
 consultants in New York. This is a challenge to do from London, and our
 plan had been to open a New York office in 2008. The alliance with Acai
 Solutions allows us to serve those clients and execute those engagements
 immediately." He added that "we have strong relationships with several U.S.
 vendors which will be announced shortly, and all of our clients have a U.S.
 presence where they also need deeply skilled capital markets resources."
