The front, middle and back offices of major financial institutions involved in the USD 700 trillion derivatives industry use our products to make sense of the complexity, risks, pitfalls and regulations surrounding these financial instruments.

Our futures and options product makes discoverability of such securities easy, which proves to be a very important for our clients in a dynamic environment.

The group is made up of fast-paced teams passionate about time-to-market, performance and visual design.

Fixed Income Core

The Fixed Income Core group develops software to support analytics and data that move global fixed income markets. We cover government, corporate, money market, municipal and preferred instruments.
