Developments in Electronic Bond Trading: What to Expect in 2018


The global explosion of electronic bond platforms and complementary technology has shifted into high gear as new and exciting ways to trade fixed income continue to attract investment and new entrants into the space. As the evolution of automated bond trading continues, new entrants will introduce and improve technology and services that touch various portions of trade workflow. While the “data renaissance” is already shedding light on an opaque market through the enhancement of price transparency, more work is necessary before any truly transformative impact on liquidity is possible.

Join Aite Group senior analyst Audrey Costabile Blater as she highlights key findings from her report, Developments in Electronic Bond Trading: What to Expect in 2018. The webinar will discuss six trends that will affect fixed income market participants in the coming year.

Key discussion points include

  • The contributions and emerging trends of a wide variety of fintech software providers, hosting services, execution platforms, exchanges, banks, and dealers
  • Data-based market intelligence and its impact in the market
  • How changes driven by MiFID II are expected to go well beyond pre- and post-trade and best execution requirements, and the regulation’s effect on several areas of business development and planning
