Advertising dealer Indications of interest (âIOIsâ) and trade advertisements to the global buyside community on AutEx enables institutions to identify the optimal trading partner.

The joint communities process in excess of 1.5 billion shares per day and connect over 1000 participants worldwide.
Stephen Wilson, Global Head of Exchange Traded Instruments at Thomson Reuters, said, âThis is a time of unprecedented change for our customers who are facing increasing regulation, greater automation of trading and fragmenting liquidity. The integration of AutEx into our desktops and the connection of the two order routing networks is an integral part of Thomson Reuters strategy to provide our customers with the content, transaction and analytical capabilities they need.â
Albert Lojko, Managing Director and Head of Equities at Tradeweb, said, âThe customers of Tradeweb and Thomson Reuters will be the real winners of this integration, which combines a leading source of block liquidity with the distribution of a world-class news and information community. This move underlines the commitment of AutEx to provide a global source of much-needed transparency at a time of increasing market fragmentation and the proliferation of dark liquidity.â
