MarkIt and Liquidity Hub

Filed under: 2015, etrading — holky @ 2:27 pm

Finextra lets us know that Markit has agreed in principle to acquire SwapsWire, the dealer-backed electronic trade confirmation network for OTC derivatives processing.  So when will MarkIt officially join forces with Liquidity Hub?   … draw a venn diagram of the shareholders of each.   So LH handle the front end execution technology, MarkIt (swapswire) the STP, and MarkIt taking the market data stuff that they have always done pretty well anyway.   Sure, MarkIt have historically been on the credit side, so with just a nodding acquaintance with the rates swaps guys, but we’re in a different world now, right?
