"Market reform is the central debate being conducted by the OTC derivatives industry today. By providing an information portal that allows for open discussion and thought leadership, we are looking to raise the level of understanding around these critical issues," said Lee Olesky, CEO of Tradeweb.
"This is a new era for OTC derivatives," said Larry Tabb, founder of New York- and London-based TABB Group, a leading capital markets industry research and consulting firm. "Greater transparency and more efficient trade processing will inevitably drive the industry towards electronic markets. Not only will this provide a more efficient and effective way to execute OTC derivatives transactions, but without it, full workflow automation is impossible."
