Its risk management products are designed by traders and risk managers, illustrating ThinkLiquidity’s belief that technology should adapt to trading firms and trading firms should not have to adapt to outdated technology.
Jeff Wilkins, ThinkLiquidity managing Director, commented “Citi is known and trusted throughout the industry and we are very pleased to partner with them.
