Tradeweb is the leading trading platform for fixed income products, derivatives, and ETFs. The operations of Tradeweb’s systems are dependent on trading latency being below a certain threshold, as high latency can negatively impact client experience. The Tradeweb Clinic Team is using machine learning models to produce a tool that predicts latency spikes by monitoring the underlying operational system, so that Tradeweb can be made aware of and take quick action to resolve any sub-optimal performance.
