TP ICAP to use Trading Technologies’ order management system
Trading software and solutions provider Trading Technologies International, Inc. (TT) has announced that interdealer broker TP ICAP plc and its Institutional Services (IS) division has entered into a multi-year agreement with the company, whereby TP ICAP will utilize TT’s new Order Management System (OMS) solution.
Through this agreement, TP ICAP IS will replace 85 trading screens in London, Paris and New York with Trading Technologies’ TT Pro trading screen.
TP ICAP’s IS brokers will use all of the TT OMS advanced order handling and post-trade allocation features to optimize their order executions and reporting.

In addition, TT will provide TP ICAP’s IS brokerage desks with direct ultra-low-latency access to the major derivatives markets across six continents through TT’s global infrastructure and colocation facilities.

We are delighted to now be expanding our strategic relationship with TP ICAP by deploying our state-of-the-art OMS offerings and next-generation TT screen to TP ICAP’s brokerage desks. With this important milestone we look forward to enabling TP ICAP to add value to its clients via generating key cost, workflow and execution efficiencies across TP ICAP’s brokerage operations,” said Michael Kraines, President and CFO of Trading Technologies.
“I am delighted to continue and broaden the long-standing partnership with Trading Technologies. I believe their new, class-leading OMS will benefit both our brokers and our clients through reducing costs and enhancing efficiencies,” said John Ruskin, CEO, Institutional Services, TP ICAP.
