Technical Analyst / Integration, Technology 

 

Tradeweb Markets is a world leader in building and operating electronic over-the-counter marketplaces. Since 1998 the company has helped transform the way that business gets done in the fixed income and derivatives markets. Tradeweb’s position as the hub of electronic trading in fixed income and derivatives business has been made possible through a longstanding partnership with the industry.

 

Our focus has been to enhance the efficiency and transparency of the markets through the application of technology without significantly disrupting the business models of the world’s major financial institutions. Over the past 14 years Tradeweb has built a global web-based electronic network of thousands of the largest banks, asset managers, central banks, pension funds and insurance companies to buy and sell government bonds and other fixed income and derivative instruments. This client-to-dealer business is the largest of the three Tradeweb Markets divisions serving institutional investors in 23 markets, across 15 currencies, and in more than 50 countries around the globe.

 

In the inter-dealer market, Tradeweb provides a broad range of voice, electronic, and hybrid platforms to the major global banks. Dealerweb, the inter-dealer division of Tradeweb, was formed in 2008 following the acquisition of broker Hilliard Farber & Co, Inc. Since then Dealerweb has expanded rapidly and in 2013 it opened its first market in Europe, providing inter-dealer trading of iTraxx indices.

 

With the recent introduction of MiFID transparency rules, Tradeweb has launched an Approved Publication Arrangement (APA) offering both post-trade transparency reporting as well as pre-trade SI quotes service.
