NEW YORK, Nov. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TradingScreen, the leading independent provider of liquidity, trading, and investment technology via SaaS, today announced the addition of Eris Exchange as a destination. Buy-side trading participants can now access margin efficient Eris Swap Futures traded on Eris SwapBook™ through TradingScreen's suite of offerings: TradeSmart® an award winning EMS, TradeExchange® a SaaS Exchange Links offering, and TradeFast® a high speed API through TradeNet®, a global network of brokers, liquidity providers and exchanges.
TradingScreen's broker-neutral approach allows buy-side clients to route orders directly, either through broker FIX infrastructures of their choice or by selecting the "sponsored access" model for electronic execution of Eris Standards Swap Futures. Buy-side clients who prefer the flexibility and choice offered by non-conflicted providers will find this offering a cornerstone of their "best execution" strategy. TradingScreen is the first broker-independent EMS offering Eris products in the market.
"Morgan Stanley's clients are very interested in the changing liquidity profile of the interest rate market. Eris products for hedging and trading interest rate risk offer an additional tool for clients' portfolio management," said Joseph Sarcona, Morgan Stanley's head of distribution for electronic rates trading. "Specifically, our clients using TradingScreen, can now access Eris futures on their multi-asset class trading platform."

The connection with Eris and the quality of its products reinforce what we offer and provides the large buy-side clients with a unique set of features that allow them to better handle a complex market infrastructure," said Philippe Buhannic, CEO of Trading Screen.
