By tapping Tradeweb's institutional, wholesale and retail liquidity, plus connecting related markets such as Treasuries and ETFs, Aladdin users will reap the benefits of this breadth of liquidity , more choice and an arsenal of innovative trading protocols and products," Chris Bruner, the Chief Product Officer at Tradeweb, said.
