Natwest Markets Taps ipushpull for PPQ Price Negotiation Tool

Natwest Markets has implemented ipullpull’s PPQ (Pushpull Quotes) for price negotiation of non-standard and complex trades. PPQ is a pre-trade workflow tool that automates the negotiation process between the buy and sell side. It uses messaging networks like Symphony and standardised syntax within private bilateral chats to allow trading and sales to communicate detailed pricing and quote information. Chatbots can interpret key data within those messages, display them within a custom application and allow the user to drive the workflow from a single screen. Data mapping transforms incoming and outgoing data into the required format, creating an extensible solution to interoperate between new and existing standards. The inclusion of structured data objects within messages, containing instrument definitions, event descriptions and a wealth of other metadata, can further aid automation of pre-trade workflow.
