The Fixed Income Connectivity Working Group (FICWG) was a collaborative initiative launched in 2010 by the investment banking community and facilitated by Etrading Software. Its objective was to standardize the communication protocols for engaging with the newly mandated SEFs using open standards FIX and FpML.
The initiative ran for five years and encompassed both standardizing the workflows and best practices & driving adoption. At its conclusion all the SEFs had adopted the new standard, delivering the following benefits:
- Lowered the cost of technology ownership
- Shortened the time-to-market for new features and products
- Provided greater vendor choice and technical flexibility
