TradingScreen Inc. (TradingScreen), the premier provider of multi-broker and multi-asset class execution management systems (EMS) to the buy side, today announced that it has integrated Fitch Solutions’ risk management data to TradeFI, its platform for accessing the fixed income markets.
As part of the integration, TradingScreen will combine its existing execution functionality with Fitch Solutions’ market-leading risk management data and access to Fitch Ratings’ fundamental credit ratings. The integration will give TradingScreen clients access to critical fixed income data on-the-fly to help shape trading decisions from a single screen.
“The integration of Fitch Solutions’ risk management data onto TradeFI further recognizes our position as a leading market data vendor,” said Ian Rothery, Managing Director of Strategic Partnerships for Fitch Solutions. “TradingScreen’s proven international reach will also allow Fitch Solutions to further extend market access to its range of credit risk and research products and services,” he added.
“The level of quality that Fitch Solutions’ risk data provides is complementary to the various trading models that TradingScreen offers on its network in order to revolutionize the experience of the fixed income buy-side client,” said TradingScreen CEO Philippe Buhannic. “The Fitch Solutions integration will deliver the best level of information at the point-of-trade in a fully integrated basis. The new service is part of the offering TradingScreen is releasing in anticipation of new regulatory requirements and to equip the fixed income trader with the most advanced trading tools in a challenging market.”
TradeFI is TradingScreen’s fully integrated fixed income trading solution. Built on a highly scalable and easy-to-implement ASP infrastructure, TradeFI provides an immediately available solution enabling the fixed income trader to access market liquidity from over 30 leading institutional market makers and alternative trading systems (ATSs).
