TradeHeader is a global Boutique Consulting Firm specialized in providing software solutions, consulting, and training in the area of financial data standards. Its main activity is based on capital market integration projects, which require not only technical skills, but also a deep knowledge of complex financial products.
TradeHeader has specialized since its beginnings in modelling processes and events around over-the-counter (OTC) and listed products, always with a strong commitment to open international standards such as FpML, FIX and ISO 20022. And this commitment has been TradeHeader’s differential value, as the company has been characterized by not only using these messaging standards, but also by having an active participation in their development.
As a result of this, TradeHeader’s consultants have been leading role actors of the FpML development and documentation, by participating in all technical and product specific working groups and committees. The TradeHeader team has also designed training courses for extending, processing and validating FpML as well as presented FpML internationally in training courses, conferences and workshops. TradeHeader also participates in FIX/FIXML and ISO 20022 working groups as well as regularly attending meetings, training courses, and conferences around them.
This constant interaction with the standards is what allows TradeHeader to provide a higher added value to its customers, by combining the experience around FpML, FIX/FIXML and ISO20022 with the knowledge of complex financial products. In particular, TradeHeader specializes in understanding properly all data that defines a complex financial product and its corresponding events, how to model each of these data in the different messaging standards that exist in the market, and providing software solutions to produce the desired output.
Among others, TradeHeader’s clients include central banks, investment banks, asset managers, custodians, exchanges, service providers, and technology.
