Credit Fund Agilon Capital Deploys TradingScreen’s OMS & EMS for Fixed Income and Derivatives
NEW YORK — December 18, 2018 — TradingScreen Inc. (TS), the all-asset class order and execution management system (OEMS), today announced that Agilon Capital (Agilon), a systematic hedge fund specializing in long/short corporate credit strategies, is now leveraging TradeSmart for FI as their OEMS.
Agilon recently launched and is deploying TradeSmart for FI to manage their activity across fixed income, including IG Corporates, High Yield, CDS, Treasuries, and futures. Key differentiators for Agilon included TS’ open connectivity with the most extensive list of data providers and trading venues.
“We are very pleased to be working with TradingScreen in our new venture. From the first demonstration, we recognized a product that has tremendous potential to be a leader in the evolution of the credit trading ecosystem. I have spent considerable time working with many of the leading electronic trading venues and believe TS to be one of the best-positioned OEMS platforms to deliver a true next-generation buy-side trader workstation that handles the comprehensive integration that is required. The team has continued to deliver on our expectations and displays a strong commitment and passion for innovation,” said Spencer Lee, Agilon’s Head of Trading, formerly the Head of Fixed Income Trading in San Francisco and Global Lead for Credit E-Trading for Blackrock.
“We knew we competed against one of the largest EMS vendors in the industry and it’s clear that Agilon selected TradingScreen because of our ability to deliver very precisely on specific, bespoke client needs at a very competitive price. We are particularly looking forward to developing further venue and workflow functionality with Agilon to keep them at the forefront of Fixed Income execution,” said Paul Reynolds, TradingScreen Head of Fixed Income.
