Bloomberg fixed income etrading

Filed under: etrading, Nuts and Bolts — holky @ 5:38 pm

So, what is the impact to the future of Bloomberg fixed income etrading now Russel Levi has moved to Superderivatives ?



  1. Depends on their key-man dependency.

    Ex-Bloomies tend to speak highly of him, current Bloomies will probably believe he is satan! 🙂

  2. Extract from the press release
    “Having had the privilege to be part of Bloomberg’s development into a global household name”

    Pass the sick bag….

  3. I tell you John, ex-Bloomies still have that “chip” implanted.

    Like sleepers during the cold war, they’ll all be called on eventually…….beware if you have one in your team!

    I’m starting to sound like Lacidar! 😉

  4. I hear Bloomberg have lost a lot of their best people in the past year. One of Russel’s sales managers John Mcgrath and his team all left last year. I hear the focus has gone back to market data and terminals.

  5. The fixed income etrading part of Bloomberg is not exactly the most dynamic organ.

    Example – insist that buy-sides use their bloomberg routers to route FIX traffic to BBG. They won’t use Radianz as “they’ve had bad experiences with Radianz”.
