Lee Olesky, Chairman and CEO, Tradeweb Markets: “Tradeweb surpassed $300 million in quarterly revenue for the first time in our history, showcasing the diversity of our business with strong contributions from rates, credit and equities. Increased rates volatility in the first quarter of 2022 contributed to record volumes in U.S. Treasuries, European government bonds and swaps. Credit delivered a record revenue quarter driven by broad-based product growth and strong corporate bond client engagement across RFQ, Tradeweb AllTrade, and Portfolio Trading – which saw a ~60% YoY increase in the number of firms using the tool. In February, our board announced succession plans for the company; I was honored to be appointed Chairman, and I am tremendously excited that my longtime partner Billy Hult will succeed me as CEO on January 1, 2023. Tradeweb has an outstanding leadership team and we believe we are well positioned for the future.”
