Our high-performant execution platform can easily be integrated into any in-house or third-party EMS/OMS.” He added, “ Vela is excited to have added Fenics onto our platform as part of our goal to expand our Fixed Income coverage and functionality to help Rates trading desks with price discovery, order routing and workflow automation.”
