IHS Markit teams up with Wave Labs for UI-less fixed income tech tools

IHS Markit’s multi-asset investment management platform, thinkFolio, is partnering with Wave Labs, a firm that has created “fixed income tools that deliver a functional window through a trader’s perspective”.

Wave Labs’ eLiSA (Electronic Liquidity Seeking Application) is an execution management system (EMS) that cuts away most tedious tasks. It uses cloud-based APIs to route orders and complete trades, and eliminates the need for liquidity venue-provided user interfaces (UIs). eLiSA offers pre-trade and during-trade analytics, as well as multiple order types, automated liquidity seeking and liquidity provisioning features.

Brett Schechterman, global head of thinkFolio at IHS Markit, said in a statement: “The plug-and-play integration of thinkFolio with eLiSA offers our end-users a smooth workflow between two complementary technologies that are specialists in their respective fields. While eLiSA is primarily a trading technology, it also seeks to address portfolio managers’ requirements from a liquidity and price discovery angle.”

He added: “These intraday market insights go hand-in-hand with thinkFolio’s bottom-up analytics, exposure monitoring flexibility and sophisticated portfolio modelling capabilities. When married, as has been our objective with similar alliances focused on other asset classes, these technologies provide a cohesive workflow that enhances front-office productivity and perpetually enriches communication between portfolio managers and the trading desk.”
