Bloomberg to acquire Broadway

Wednesday 15 March 2023 12:20 CET | News

US-based financial, software, data, and media company Bloomberg has announced its agreement to acquire Broadway Technology, a global fintech solution provider.

Following this acquisition, Bloomberg will have the possibility to provide a low latency execution management offering that is optimised for rates trading and further innovation in multi-asset software. 

The company will also focus on the commensurate need for services that meet the preferences and demands of a larger variety of customers, keeping in mind their workflows and trading processes, such as the ones that operate across fixed-income asset classes. This comes as the electronic trading volumes in the rates and credit markets continue to grow. 

Bloomberg will leverage Broadway’s income market-making software in order to complete its product portfolio, prioritising the aim to provide customers with the opportunity to interact with the market faster and more efficient.  Furthermore, Bloomberg will use the new services for its development process in the liquid interest rate and government debt markets that trade on exchanges, as well as venues. 

Currently, the acquirement process is subject to customary regulatory approvals from multiple organisations.
