Our fixed income group trades governemnt securities and corporates on various exchanges. We need to get those trades into Bloomberg TOMS as quickly as possible to manage the firm's risk. There's a potential for a monetary loss if we miss a trade or input a trade into TOMS incorrectly.
We trade on eSpeed, Brokertech, Dealerweb, MarketAxess and Liquidity Edge.
As the desk grows and volume increases we need automation to help us manage our business.
