Twenty years after the introduction of electronic Treasuries trading, the next phase of fixed income electronification is taking hold. The biggest shift is occurring on the investor side, says Colm Murtagh, managing director, Tradeweb, who adds that buy-side trading desks increasingly are leveraging technology to scale up to handle a growing number of trades and improve efficiency. Speaking with TABB Group analyst Colby Jenkins at TABB’s 2019 Fixed Income Summit in February, Murtagh discusses automation of routine trades, Tradeweb’s evolving role in the buy-side workflow, and the addition of live, streaming pricing on the Tradeweb platform.
