Capital Markets

Our Approach

As a newly launched brand in a crowded post-trade vendor market, OSTTRA wanted to stand out from the crowd by getting commentary included in the likes of the Financial Times and Bloomberg. Our Capital Markets team identified a series of key market infrastructure trends and issues that would pique the interest of the business press. Then, based on the news agenda, the team proactively pitched OSTTRA data and commentary to the business media.

Results we’re proud of
