| Tradeweb

We are excited to share that Tradeweb’s SEF offering was named 2014 SEF Platform of the Year by GlobalCapital at this year’s Americas Derivatives Awards. GlobalCapital honored the people, companies and deals that led the global derivatives industry over the past year.

Tradeweb was recognized for its streaming prices functionality to TW SEF, which provides market participants with quicker access to prices.

Tradeweb CEO, Lee Olesky spoke with GlobalCapital about the enhanced SEF functionality noting that “We’ve introduced more click-to-trade type functionality for the derivatives markets that basically make it a quicker process to get to a price that didn’t really exist before.”

The firm was also recognized for its compression trade functionality and its role as a leading SEF as markets continue to evolve electronically led by regulatory changes.

According to Mr. Olesky, “I think everything is increasingly going electronic. If you look at our volumes holistically; the products that are traded electronically, the market share, it’s all been a growth story for the last fifteen years and we expect that to continue. With derivatives, it’s a slightly different dynamic in that there’s a regulatory mandate in the US and one that approaching in Europe that’s really driving 100% of the business.”

The award was presented at the GlobalCapital Derivatives Americas Awards Ceremony on April 22, 2014.

Thank you to our clients for your support and all of our employees for your dedication and hard work that has helped bring such outstanding recognition to the firm!
