Tradeweb Adds to Trophy Collection with Fintech Accolades from Risk Magazine and The Trade
It’s been another year of prestigious award wins for Tradeweb and our suite of innovative trading tools. After winning ‘Best Buy-Side TCA Tool’ at the Buy-Side Technology Awards earlier this month, we were honored to pick up the ‘OTC Trading Platform Innovation of the Year’ trophy for our Automated Intelligent Execution (AiEX) functionality at the Risk Awards yesterday. Winners were decided by the magazine’s editorial team following a rigorous three-month judging process.
The increased adoption of our AiEX functionality by buy-side firms highlights the importance of technology in improving customers’ trading operations. Tradeweb launched AiEX for clients trading fixed income products in 2013, before expanding the tool in rates and credit derivatives in the second half of 2016. This allowed our clients to implement fully automated strategies for the first time in these markets, opening up the door not only for systematic trading of swaps, but also cross market strategies including cash and futures.
The solution also brings workflow optimization and improved trading efficiency through auto-routed orders, which can also be manually released from a client’s OMS by the trader or portfolio management team. In addition, the ability to configure trading rules through the automated trading solution supports clients’ compliance with their best execution requirements.
By building infrastructures that streamline trading workflows through innovative tools and flexible execution protocols, Tradeweb helps investors find the other side of their trade quickly and efficiently across asset classes. Last week, The Trade magazine recognized our achievements in the fixed income space and named Tradeweb ‘Outstanding Fixed Income Trading Venue’ at its annual Leaders in Trading Awards. The event, which was held in London, celebrated the achievements of industry leaders throughout 2018 as judged by The Trade’s editorial panel.
As always, receiving these accolades would not have been possible without the hard work and commitment of our employees, and the support of our clients!
