Establishing Connectivity to Multiple Liquidity Pools

Business Challenge

A global financial firm wanted to evaluate their current trading environment and eventually enhance automated trading and electronic connectivity to multiple liquidity pools. One of the main challenges was assessing and evaluating internal and external solutions to establish connectivity in a tight time frame.


Kohesiv team conducted a quick assessment to identify business, technology and operations needs and evaluated both internal (3 options) and external (~ 16 various vendor solutions) solutions to establish connectivity to liquidity pools. The details included technology and business process considerations, resource requirements, a project implementation roadmap with investment estimates, and a business case.


Our recommended approach was embraced by our client and was approved by the executive management. Ultimately, our client decided to develop an internal platform as there was no single solution that could offer process & technology efficiencies; our reference architecture was adopted as the firm’s electronic trading framework.
