Refinitiv announced this Monday that it has teamed up with TP ICAP, by signing a multi-year strategic agreement, in order to support the interdealer broker’s data needs for both its broker and technology platforms.
According to the statement, the agreement will power TP ICAP’s brokers and enterprise technology with data, news, and analytics from Refinitiv. The financial markets data provider will provide data assistance through the Refinitiv Data Platform, and on the desktop via Eikon.
