With this new functionality, combined with Bloomberg’s analytical capabilities, Shell will gain additional insight into the group’s risk profile with more than 200 distinct bank counterparties.

Bloomberg Terminal already caters to a broad global market intelligence community. By feeding this information through a straight through processing (STP) model, Shell is better able to route market requests from regional centers around the world to its central treasury.

It is part of an extensive suite of functions that allow both corporations and banks to access liquidity from over 300 providers worldwide.

Tod Van Name, Bloomberg Global Head of FX Electronic Trading, commented: “Shell has long been an early adopter of innovative FX technology.

“Shell worked with Bloomberg to develop a comprehensive process that helps reduce our operating risk and transaction costs. Now, we can more efficiently route market requests from regional centers around the world to our central treasury.  The Bloomberg Terminal connects Shell with all our counterparties providing straight through processing (STP) into Shell’s treasury management system,” added Michael Dawson, Shell Head of Liquidity and Foreign Exchange.
