Tradeweb Named Outstanding Fixed Income Trading Venue at The Trade's Leaders in Trading Awards 2016
We’re proud to share that Tradeweb has won the Outstanding Fixed Income Trading Venue award as part of The Trade magazine’s Leaders in Trading Awards 2016. This year’s event showcased the most influential buy-side participants and individuals from leading broker-dealers, liquidity providers and trading venues.
Tradeweb was also shortlisted in the Electronic Bond Initiatives for Block Trading category, both for Asia and the U.S. The awards were presented at a gala dinner held at The Savoy in London on November 17th.
2016 was another landmark year for Tradeweb, with the firm acquiring CodeStreet LLC in March, to bring data-driven trade identification and workflow management to electronic corporate bond trading. We also launched a U.S. ETF platform, building on the success and growth of our European ETF platform, and have already seen volumes surpass $12 billion. In June, buy-side adoption of axes on Tradeweb increased by 131% since the beginning of the year. Furthermore, the UK Treasury recently announced that Tradeweb is one of the joint-future providers for end-of-day reference prices for Gilts and Treasury bills.
Thank you to our employees, clients and the industry for your support and the continued recognition of our platform!
