“Broadening client choice was an important theme this quarter in both credit and rates. Our clients utilized a wider range of electronic trading tools and protocols in credit including RFQ, Tradeweb AllTrade and Portfolio Trading — further evidence that electronic trading activity continues to grow in terms of both volume and sophistication,” Tradeweb CEO, Lee Olesky said in a statement.
Meanwhile, the company closed the acquisition of Nasdaq Fixed Income last quarter that will position itself better in the trading market.
“From a broader Tradeweb perspective, this acquisition is a great opportunity, and we believe it positions us well to drive additional shareholder value,” Olesky added.
