Bloomberg has implemented ETF list trading in its request-for-quote (RFQ) platform to allow clients to trade multiple ETFs in “one click”.

The ETF list trading feature will be integrated into the Bloomberg platform, RFQe, providing clients with pricing and liquidity across multi-asset ETFs with more than 100 liquidity providers.

It will also work alongside the firm’s equities execution management system and a broader suite of trading solutions.

Bloomberg added clients are also able to minimise information leakage such as pre-hedging by opting for a two-way quote and can compare quotes from multiple sources to ensure they are getting the best price.

Paul Kaplan, global head of equities, credit and price transparency at Bloomberg, said: “We provide clients with access to deep liquidity and a holistic ETF solution that is fully integrated with other Bloomberg solutions across news, data, pre and post-trade data analysis, and communication tools.”

Maria Barreira, global head of execution at French bank Indosuez Wealth Management, added being able to trade multiple instruments at once helps improve the speed and efficiency of its execution.

“This is especially important during periods of increased market volatility, such as those we have experienced recently,” she said.
