Tradeweb Changing Shape

Filed under: 2015, etrading — holky @ 8:57 pm

Tradeweb’s vision – where markets meet;

To be the first network to offer insitutional clients trading from ONE platform, with ONE ticket, in ANY asset class, in ANY currency, anywhere in the world.

A great aim – but clearly not enough to keep them busy. Today we hear that Tradeweb also plans to launch an electronic inter-dealer platform (for pass-through mortgage-backed securities in early 2009 ..as part of their purchase of Hilliard Farber’s interdealer business). I wonder how much appetite (within TW & the dealer shareholders) there is to extend the interdealer product set?

Well, even though Tradeweb clearly has many irons in many fires, and shipping (/cargo) is something ICAP have mentioned with a degree of excitement, I don’t think this Tradeweb trademarked product will actually be related (odd about the trademark though) …

Tradeweb ™ streamlines the cargo declaration process by enabling users to send declarations to the Singapore Customs, IE Singapore, and other controlling agencies directly from the computer

…unless you know different?

  1. Ah, this cracks me up. Can I send an order to the Tradeweb Fixed Income trading platform over the Tradeweb Routing Network (tre old Autex business). Er – no.

    So “the first network to offer insitutional clients trading from ONE platform, with ONE ticket, in ANY asset class, in ANY currency, anywhere in the world” makes me laugh so hard I think I might leak a little….

    Marketing bullshit department – meet the real world. No expenditure in tech refresh since Toffey and co built the firm first time round and now they want to take over the world.

    Muppets!

  2. Off Topic – Looks like Currenex are going to be moving into the govt bonds space backed by the might of the State street empire, yes I know they’re a low latency FX platform, but it would seem that there will be a an organisational change, moving to Canary Wharf, swallowing the FXC product and producing the ‘GOVEX platform’ sometime this year.

  3. Naah, they’ve capitalised the ‘W’. Tradeweb don’t use a capital W. Except in the TW viewer. Sometimes.
