Billy Hult, CEO of Tradeweb: “We had a very strong start to 2024, continuing last year’s momentum thanks to broad-based organic growth and a number of important milestones. Our quarterly ADV climbed 39% from the prior year period to a record $1.9 trillion, with several more ADV records set across rates, credit, equities and money markets.

Tradeweb captured a record 17.6% share of U.S. High Grade TRACE (+420 bps from the prior year period), reflecting steady growth in an area of strategic focus and investment for us.

In January, we finalized our acquisition of r8fin, a technology provider that specializes in algorithmic-based execution for U.S. Treasuries and interest rate futures, and we feel great about how this will strengthen our offering with macro hedge funds.

In April, we agreed to acquire ICD, a leading institutional investment technology provider for corporate treasury organizations, which will add Corporates as a new client channel with significant cross-sell opportunities.

We also recently celebrated the five-year anniversary of Tradeweb’s IPO, and we remain laserfocused on keeping continued innovation and collaboration at the heart of Tradeweb’s success. Now more than ever, we believe the future of trading is multi-asset class — and innovative technology is how markets are going to get there.”
