Speaking on FI Roundtable 5: Reducing the primary market burden

Eric has taken matters into his own hands to lead a project that can ‘normalise’ and automate parts of the primary market process, seen by many as the last area of trading with heavy manual input. Working with Bloomberg, IHS Markit and DirectBooks, Eric’s trading desk has been able to remove some of the manual data entry tasks, as well as improve the order flow between traders and Portfolio Managers to make the whole process more efficient, and ultimately free up time for his trading team.
