LiquidityBook Integrates FactSet Data12.14.2016
December 14, 2016
NEW YORK — LiquidityBook today announced that it has successfully integrated FactSet’s real-time global exchange, reference and benchmark data within both the Buy-Side LBX and Sell-Side LBX POEMS (portfolio, order and execution management system) platforms. The data can be leveraged globally across all asset classes supported by LiquidityBook — equities, options, futures, fixed income and FX.
With the integration, clients are able to access intraday holdings and trade files in LBX and perform detailed analyses with FactSet’s real-time portfolio analytics and optimization tools. The combined offering is currently being leveraged by several clients, including Crow Point Partners, which recently implemented the LBX platform across its front-, middle- and back-office operations as a replacement of the Eze Investment Suite.
“By having a deeper integration with partners like LiquidityBook, clients have a more complete user experience by having FactSet content integrated into their POEMS workflow and also have their trades updated in the FactSet workstations. This allows a seamless way to experience the FactSet workstation and realize the benefits of adding FactSet market data to other products,” added Dave Hannibal, Global Channel Partners Manager at FactSet.
“We’re very excited to partner with FactSet and expand the universe of data and analytics options available to our clients,” said Sean Sullivan, Chief Revenue Officer at LiquidityBook. “FactSet provides all the information needed to streamline and accelerate the buy-side workflow, from news and quotes to robust volume analytics and powerful portfolio performance tools. Its portfolio-specific information also helps to enhance the communication between trader and PM, strengthening a vital link on the buy-side desk.”
