Dave Hannibal, Global Channel Partners Manager at FactSet, commented: “By having a deeper integration with partners like LiquidityBook, clients have a more complete user experience by having FactSet content integrated into their POEMS workflow and also have their trades updated in the FactSet workstations. This allows a seamless way to experience the FactSet workstation and realize the benefits of adding FactSet market data to other products”.
Multi-Asset Management Solution
LBX is LiquidityBook’s multi-asset trade management solution for order entry, risk, compliance, and reporting. With the integration, clients are able to access intraday holdings and trade files in LBX and perform detailed analyses with FactSet’s real-time portfolio analytics and optimisation tools.
The combined offering is currently being utilised by several clients, including Crow Point Partners, which recently implemented the LBX platform across its front, middle and back-office operations as a replacement of the Eze Investment Suite.
Sean Sullivan, Chief Revenue Officer at LiquidityBook, said: “We’re very excited to partner with FactSet and expand the universe of data and analytics options available to our clients. FactSet provides all the information needed to streamline and accelerate the buy-side workflow, from news and quotes to robust volume analytics and powerful portfolio performance tools. Its portfolio-specific information also helps to enhance the communication between trader and PM, strengthening a vital link on the buy-side desk.”
