Tradeweb Takes Home Trio of Trading Technology Awards
It’s been a big week of wins for Tradeweb. Over the last seven days, Tradeweb has been selected for top honors in The Trade magazine’s Leaders in Trading Awards, Alt Credit Intelligence magazine’s European Services Awards, and Waters Technology’s Buy-Side Technology Awards.
We are honored by the recognition and incredibly proud of our team for their unyielding commitment to innovation. As a leader in electronic trading in fixed income since its very beginnings in the late 1990s, our constant focus has been to enhance the efficiency and transparency in the 25+ marketplaces we support through technology. While the trading landscape has changed significantly since those early days, these awards are a testament to our ability to keep pushing the envelope to move markets forward.
On October 26, The Trade magazine selected Tradeweb for their “Innovation in Derivatives Technology” accolade as part of the Leaders in Trading 2017 Awards. The win singled out Tradeweb’s automated trading solution for clients trading interest rate swaps instruments and credit default swaps indices, and recognized the power of this new technology to increase speed-to-market and to reduce both trading costs and operational risk.
Likewise, Alt Credit Intelligence’s judging panel acknowledged our role as an innovator, bestowing the “Best Trading and Execution Technology” award on Tradeweb for new functionality and protocols that enhance clients’ trading workflow and improve efficiency of the trading process. The November 2 awards dinner highlighted Tradeweb’s ability to apply new technology without disrupting the business models of the world’s major financial institutions. It also recognized our flexible trading protocols, transaction cost analysis tools, and global connectivity to some of the largest banks, asset managers, central banks, pension funds and insurance companies.
Tradeweb’s transaction cost analysis tool also caught the eyes of the nine judges at Buy-Side Technology who gave Tradeweb the award for “Best Buy-Side TCA Tool” at their annual ceremony on November 3. The tool, which allows traders to securely access and view comprehensive reports detailing their transactions in real-time, and metrics that quantify execution performance, enables institutions to ensure regulatory compliance, as well as to modify their strategies to reduce costs and achieve optimal results for investors.
We are proud to celebrate these wins and look forward to the opportunity to keep growing with our clients as we tackle new challenges together.
