Charles River and Tradeweb expand multi-asset trading collaboration
Charles River Development and Tradeweb Markets, an operator of electronic marketplaces for rates, credit, equities and money markets today announced an expansion of their collaboration to provide mutual clients with direct access to fixed income inventory and streamlined workflows from the Charles River Investment Management Solution (Charles River IMS).
The collaboration enables institutional and retail investment firms to seamlessly source cross product liquidity available on Tradeweb from the Charles River Inventory Hub and Order and Execution Management System (OEMS) for global fixed income securities.
Enhancing this longstanding collaboration will allow clients to benefit from enriched pre-trade inventory, the certification of new products including the recently launched direct-to-Freddie Mac Exchange path, and integration to support trading of Chinese bonds through the Tradeweb Bond Connect platform.
Additionally, clients will benefit from the connectivity and ongoing advancement of Tradeweb’s award winning cross product Automated Intelligent Execution (AiEX) tool, allowing increased speed-to-market and reduction of both cost and operational risk. Leveraging Tradeweb’s expertise in automated trading, clients can capitalise on new trading opportunities through increased reactivity to market conditions and events, while benefiting from greater speed and efficiency of execution.
The expansion of the Tradeweb partnership is the latest addition to Charles River’s growing ecosystem of trading venues, enabling buy-side clients to access global liquidity using their preferred execution protocols.
“Our growing collaboration with Tradeweb is based on their impressive track record of technological innovation and the breadth and depth of their institutional trading solutions,” says John Plansky, CEO, Charles River. “Expanding that collaboration provides our clients with more transparent, streamlined and intelligent ways to trade efficiently across asset classes and geographies.”
“We welcome the opportunity to expand our relationship with Charles River for the benefit of our mutual buy-side clients,” says Lee Olesky (pictured), CEO, Tradeweb. “We remain focused on providing cross asset liquidity to help investors mitigate operational risk, realize greater efficiencies across their trading desks, and gain the benefits of trade automation.”
