TradingHubs: Provides financial analytics tools

Founded in 2010, TradingHub provides financial analytics tools to capital market participants, including investment banks, asset managers, hedge funds, commodity houses, and brokerage firms, collectively representing over $20T of AUM. 

The company provides trade surveillance, anti-money laundering, best execution, and financial analytics software across asset classes, including rates, fixed income, FX, commodities, and equities. 

“With the introduction and increasing complexity of financial market regulations – such as Dodd-Frank, MAR and MiFID II – financial institutions are under mounting pressure to deliver robust trade surveillance programs to help both ensure regulatory compliance and counter continuously evolving market abuse,” says Walker. 

“Leveraging sophisticated financial modelling and deep experience across both exchange-traded and OTC products, TradingHub’s technology is uniquely positioned to accurately detect the most complex forms of financial crime, including cross-asset market manipulation,” he adds.

The company monitors 135M+ trades per day across 45+ countries. It serves more than 60 clients, including some of the world’s largest investment banks, hedge funds, and asset managers.

TradingHub is headquartered in London and has additional offices in New York, San Francisco, Toronto, and Singapore.
