DeltaOne and Horizon Software Partner to Provide an Integrated Solution for ETF Quoting and Hedging

By Zoe Schiff

DeltaOne Solutions and Horizon Software have partnered to deliver an integrated solution that provides a single place to analyse and implement index and exchange traded funds (ETF) trades, in turn allowing market makers and traders to quote and hedge ETF trades with greater accuracy.

The partnership brings together DeltaOne’s index and ETF data and Horizon’s automated trading systems to deliver an integrated solution for ETF quoting and hedging. The solution is designed to improve the sourcing, pricing and trading of global ETFs and indices, and accelerate adoption of electronic processing solutions across the ETF trading market.

With a large number of clients in common, DeltaOne and Horizon expect significant take up of the integrated offering. Sylvain Thieullent, CEO of electronic trading at Horizon, says: “The integration has been completed and facilitates the streamlining of workflow, allowing financial institutions to create and implement sophisticated trading strategies quickly and cost effectively. With tightening profit margins, participants in ETF markets are looking for reliable and flexible solutions and this is driving the trend towards integrated systems.”

The DeltaOne and Horizon solution avoids the need for multiple vendors to be involved in trading transactions and instead provides users with a seamless workflow. Horizon’s clients typically include investment banks and other financial institutions that are involved in ETF liquidity provision and/or basket trading. DeltaOne’s clients include investment banks, exchanges, ETF issuers, hedge funds and trading houses.

Bernie Thurston, global head of DeltaOne, concludes: “Both DeltaOne and Horizon have been instrumental in the trading community’s efforts to strengthen the operational and information infrastructure of the ETF trading market. This partnership reaches across borders and asset classes to provide a service that will help a wide range of market participants achieve greater certainty in their transaction processing.”
