Execution broker ITG said it will integrate the BrightWire news engine into its execution management system, a move it said will give users access to real-time news that goes a step further than traditional financial news services.
Under the arrangement, ITG said the BrightWire platform will be available through the Triton EMS. BrightWire scours tens of thousands of unique news sources 24 hours a day, seven days a week in more than 30 languages, to access news the mainstream media can't, ITG said.
Its clients include asset management firms, investment banks, brokerages and trading firms.
"BrightWire's global real-time news capabilities offer our clients an information source which goes beyond traditional financial news services," ITG Chief Executive Bob Gasser said in a statement.
