Thomson Reuters, a leading global provider of information services to the finance industry, announced today the addition of leading FX platform EBS to its Thomson Reuters Trade Notification (TRTN) network, as per an official announcement.
By joining the TRTN, EBS is able to offer complete Straight through Processing (STP) to its clients through access to the large number of users on the network, as the service is available in 100 countries.
Thomson Reuters says that it added EBS to TRTN as part of its aim to improve market efficiency by providing a trade notification service that is venue-agnostic.
TRTN serves global FX market participants and provides a single point for liquidity providers (LPs) to connect with counterparties, and where venues can automatically publish post-trade related messages, bringing together trading, clearing and settlement players in foreign exchange markets.
