ION has successfully integrated its fixed income solutions with XTP Execution (XTPE), extending client access to various futures markets. This integration enables banks and brokers to enhance front-office efficiency and access liquidity across a broader range of venues. ION XTPE, an automated trade workflow solution for cleared derivatives trading, now offers ION’s fixed income clients seamless access to major global exchanges and local markets through a network of execution brokers.

The integration aims to reduce support and infrastructure costs, streamline global trading operations, and provide clients with enhanced connectivity and agility. Tommaso Di Grazia, Head of Fixed Income Product Development, commented: “We are in continuous dialogue with our clients to understand their evolving needs, such as the need for a consolidated trading platform that can transform front-office efficiency. The integration will offer our clients the enhanced connectivity and agility they need to differentiate in a challenging market landscape.”

This move is part of ION’s broader strategy to expand client options and improve internal cost efficiency.
