FactSet Adds Fixed Income Trading Capabilities to Portware

FactSet, the global provider of financial information and analytical applications, has launched a suite of fixed income trading capabilities for Portware, its execution management system (EMS) best known for electronic trading and automation in listed assets and FX. With the introduction of fixed income trading, Portware now enables clients to trade more efficiently across more asset classes. In addition to connecting to established trading venues, FactSet is integrating with several data providers and trading destinations to display pre-trade analytics related to pricing and liquidity, as well as sourcing content from FactSet’s own fixed income data and analytics libraries. Further investment and integrations are planned to aggregate additional liquidity sources for FactSet’s trading clients. The new capabilities were built in collaboration with FactSet’s client GIC, to support GIC’s global trading desks.
