Tradeweb Markets is a world leader in building and operating electronic over-the-counter marketplaces. Since 1998 the company has helped transform the way that business gets done in the fixed income and derivatives markets. Tradeweb’s position as the hub of electronic trading in fixed income and derivatives business has been made possible through a longstanding partnership with the industry.
Our focus has been to enhance the efficiency and transparency of the markets through the application of technology without significantly disrupting the business models of the world’s major financial institutions. For 15 years Tradeweb has built a global web-based electronic network of thousands of the largest banks, asset managers, central banks, pension funds and insurance companies to buy and sell government bonds and other fixed income and derivative instruments. This client-to-dealer business is the largest of the three Tradeweb Markets divisions serving institutional investors in 22 markets, across 15 currencies, in more than 50 countries around the globe.
In the inter-dealer market, Tradeweb provides a broad range of voice, electronic, and hybrid platforms to the major global banks. Dealerweb, the inter-dealer division of Tradeweb, was formed in 2008 following the acquisition of broker Hilliard Farber & Co, Inc. Since then Dealerweb has expanded rapidly, and in 2011 the business acquired the brokerage assets of Rafferty Capital Markets. Today, Dealerweb actively competes across a range of interest rate markets. It also operates a municipal bonds brokerage business through J.J. Kenny Drake, acquired as part of the RaffCap transaction.
Tradeweb Direct provides advanced trading solutions for financial advisors and traders. The platform was built on our core strengths – experience and expertise – to bring innovation and efficiency to the wealth management community. Tradeweb Direct has become synonymous with superior execution, providing clients with easy access to live offerings, the most accurate pricing in the marketplace, and lightning-fast execution.
