Neptune launched new web interface and features in 2022
Last year, Neptune partnered with low-code development platform Genesis Global to further its fixed income data distribution goals. The enhanced Neptune service offers its 115 clients and dealers a new web interface and several features including: single name CDS, support for emerging market bonds, and improved market analysis, including axe skews.
According to Neptune, the modular, low-code software design by Genesis makes it much easier and faster for the firm to introduce new capabilities and analytics. Rather than amending traditional code, updating Neptune to provide new data or functionality simply requires adding modules or amending modules already in the system.
The new Neptune platform integrates with leading order management systems (OMS), execution management systems (EMS), and proprietary trading tools with a FIX API. Data can also be transmitted via SFTP and any user can access Neptune’s user-friendly interface.
