Ullink wins Best Pre-Trade Risk and Best SOR at Intelligent Trading Technology Awards
Latest accolades confirm Ullink leadership position in electronic trading technology


PARIS/NEW YORK, 08 June 2017 . Ullink, a global provider of electronic trading and connectivity solutions to the financial community, today announced its success in the Intelligent Trading Technology (ITT) Awards 2017. Ullink has been recognised for its solutions in the category of Pre-Trade Risk Controls, which it won outright, and in the Smart Order Routing (SOR) category, where Ullink was awarded joint first place. Final rankings were determined by votes cast by the wider user community, based on a shortlist compiled by a panel of industry experts.

Ullink’s Risk and SOR solutions, UL IRIS and UL SMART, are part of Ullink’s electronic trading software offering. The solutions can be deployed separately, as enterprise or fully-managed services, but are often combined as part of Low Touch and High Touch trading platforms. They can also be packaged on-demand with Ullink’s connectivity middleware, UL BRIDGE, which processes in excess of 20 million orders per day across Ullink’s global customer base. Recent enhancements include support for new asset classes and new market structures, as global capital markets continue to shift towards electronic trading in response to regulatory initiatives and cost pressures.

“We are pleased to offer our congratulations to Ullink on their prestigious Intelligent Trading Technology Award wins. Our readership of 15,000 senior trading technology executives clearly voted Ullink as the leading provider of Best Pre-Trade Risk Controls – Vendor and joint winner of Best Smart Order Routing System” said Andrew Delaney, President of A-Team Group, which hosts the ITT Awards.

Richard Bentley, Ullink’s Chief Product Officer, comments, “The ITT awards are very important to Ullink as they are voted for by actual users of trading technologies from many different vendors. We are delighted to be recognised in two categories for Pre-Trade Risk Controls and SOR. We have been making significant R&D investments across our portfolio of electronic trading products for several years to respond to the requirements of cross-asset class support, regulatory change and ever-higher performance demands, and it is especially pleasing to see these efforts being recognised in this manner”.

The ITT awards are designed to acknowledge excellence in trading technologies within Capital Markets. Ullink is the only vendor to achieve best-in-class success in more than one category at the 2017 awards.
