25 March 2003



              Royal London Asset Management selects QuoteTerminal



Royal London Asset Management has signed a licence agreement for a number of
QuoteTerminal systems from Knowledge Technology Solutions (KTS) PLC. Due to
market data rationalisation it is replacing, at a significant cost reduction,
existing terminals in its UK division with QuoteTerminal, KTS's UK-specific live
financial information system.



There is potential for Royal London Asset Management (RLAM) to place an
additional order for MarketTerminalTM, KTS's international market data product,
once it launches later this year. MarketTerminalTM, which will cover markets
such as Nasdaq, NYSE and Euronext, may replace further terminals used in its
non-UK divisions. Royal London Asset Management is investment adviser to the
Royal London Group and has over £21bn of assets under management



QuoteTerminal offers UK finance professionals premium news, data and analysis
sourced from well-known providers such as Standard & Poor's, RNS, Dow Jones and
AFX.



Dr Marc Pinter-Krainer, the Chief Executive of KTS, said:



'Our business proposition is to offer competitively-priced fully professional
market data systems to City institutions.  We keep the costs of our products
competitive by exploiting the inherent advantages of our proprietary technology.
And as market data managers review their financial data and news needs, we are
witnessing increasing sales and interest in QuoteTerminal from institutions
seeking more cost-effective alternatives to Bloomberg and Reuters. The RLAM
order confirms the appeal of QuoteTerminal and we are pleased to welcome them
among our latest customers.'



Jerry Day, IT Manager at RLAM, said:



'We have had to look closely at our market data costs for this coming year and
the QuoteTerminal solution offers us an extremely cost effective and portable
method of addressing a substantial portion of our requirement.'
