Integrate Trade Feeds from Multiple Sources with ShadowConnect

ShadowConnect™ is a centralized hub for the incorporation of global trade feed handlers and the consolidation of this data into standardized trade execution reports. Not limited to any specific asset class, ShadowConnect captures all trades and transforms them into a standard message format that can be routed and converted again for delivery to single or multiple downstream systems. Through ShadowConnect’s detailed reports, users gain increased visibility into imports, trades, exports and exceptions. Often used in conjunction with ShadowSuite®, ShadowConnect can also be licensed separately.
