LTX and TS Imagine Enhance Fixed Income Liquidity Access for Buy Side Through Strategic Integration

Subscribe to our newsletter

LTX, the AI-driven trading platform operated by Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc., has successfully integrated with TS Imagine’s TradeSmart Fixed Income Execution Management System (EMS). The collaboration aims to improve the trading experience for mutual buy-side clients by delivering enhanced pre-trade transparency, superior price discovery, and consolidated access to a wide pool of liquidity within their existing operational frameworks.

The integration enables direct access to LTX’s corporate bond trading functionalities within the TradeSmart Fixed Income platform, providing the ability for TradeSmart users to stage orders on LTX and send their indications of interest (IOIs) to the LTX Liquidity Cloud, LTX’s network of sell-side axes and anonymous buy-side IOIs.

At the heart of the integration is the Liquidity Cloud’s proprietary analytical engine, which identifies Cloud Matches, real-time signals of natural contra interest within the network. These are quantified by Cloud Match Scores, which are dynamically updates on the TradeSmart interface, offering users instantaneous insights into the availability of natural liquidity in real-time.

AJ Cass, Head of Market Structure and Liquidity, LTX , commented: “Workflow integration has always been a key element to the LTX strategy as part of our mission to simplify and optimize, embedding new, innovative capabilities within the screens that our clients are familiar with. We’re pleased to integrate with TS Imagine, bringing pre-trade transparency and trading efficiencies to our mutual clients’ workflows.”

Spencer Lee, Chief Markets Officer of TS Imagine, added: “Integrating with LTX further enhances the price discovery capabilities available to our clients by offering differentiated liquidity and the ability to manage the entire lifecycle of a trade on a single platform.”
