Investment services, risk and data management giant, IHS Markit, has partnered with Adroit Trading Technologies to give access to its multi-asset execution management capabilities via the thinkFolio investment management platform, with coverage that spans global FICC and equities markets, including bonds, FX, leveraged loans, and over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives. The firms report successfully integrating data and round-trip execution workflows.

Adroit’s EMS is designed to give buy-side traders access to key liquidity and data providers. From its origins in the over the counter (OTC) and fixed income space, Adroit has built capabilities across asset classes including FX and listed products and has been designed to consolidate multi-asset execution management on a single platform.

Integration between thinkFolio and Adroit offers mutual clients end-to-end capabilities throughout the investment process and tackles the many nuances of OTC market microstructure. The integrated solution is expected to facilitate portfolio analysis, portfolio construction, security selection, order generation, order management, market data aggregation and execution across relevant trading protocols and liquidity channels.

“Adroit is an excellent fit for thinkFolio and our client base,” said Brett Schechterman, global head of thinkFolio at IHS Markit. “Like thinkFolio, Adroit is built on a deep understanding of the complexities of the fixed income market and supports clients across asset classes. The Adroit team also share our belief in the importance of flexibility and interoperability. Together we look forward to helping mutual clients streamline their operations, consolidate their technology footprint and empower decision-making in the front office.”

“We are excited to bring our cross-asset trading technology expertise to thinkFolio’s sophisticated client base,” said Greg Azrak, head of business development, Adroit. “The market is looking for best-of-breed solutions throughout the investment lifecycle, and our liquidity partners are seeking efficient, scalable distribution. Together with thinkFolio, we are well positioned to address these demands.”
