The acquisition of iMarket’s customer base allowed Speakerbus to add hundreds of institutional financial services companies to Candence’s on-net community.

Dennis Costello, President and CEO of iMarket, commented: “iMarket has developed an exceptional reputation for providing high-quality connectivity and personalised service to our customers in the financial community for twenty years. We believe that as the market transitions to digital services and hybrid work models, the combination of the iMarket community and Cadence platform allows our customers to rethink their trading communications and do it in a way that suits their business and with their preferred partners.”
