MARKET DEPTH

We have personal and long standing relationships with traders and sales desks at over 200 counterparts, of whom 100 are US based, giving you access to a full and comprehensive view of markets and how they are axed at any point in time. We also connect you to our extensive network of US domestic brokers. With markets ever more fragmented, and bonds liquid for shorter periods of time, depth and liquidity have never been more important.

CLIENT TO CLIENT

Access exclusive client to client liquidity, away from the market, through our strong relationships with over 500+ global institutional clients based in the UK, US, EMEA, CEEMA & LATAM. Our clients include asset managers, banks, bond funds, family offices, hedge funds, independent wealth managers, insurance companies, pension funds and sovereign wealth funds.

PRIMARY ISSUES

We trade over USD 30 bln equivalent nominal per year in various currencies. Our trading volumes enable us to give clients, who trade their secondary business with us, access to primary market issues. This is a significant benefit as allocations of note are rarely made to institutional clients who are below tier one.

EXECUTION

Trading at the best price available to our clients is the key focus of our best execution policy. Trade with us using the most convenient method for you – telephone, Bloomberg ALLQ, Bloomberg IB, email, FIX connection or telephone. We appreciate that many of our clients will already have relationships with a number of market makers and we always ensure that these are never compromised.

EXPERTISE

We pride ourselves on working closely with our clients to ensure they benefit from our extensive bond market knowledge. Whether it is sourcing axes, knowing which houses are best in which sector or understanding the type of bonds that our clients require. By maintaining close relationships and high levels of trust with both the buy and sell side, we benefit all.

REPORTING

Bloomberg BMTF ensures seamless compliance with the MiFID II regulatory requirements.
For non-MTF transactions, TRADEcho provides simplified, cost-effective MiFID II reporting where clients wish us to report on their behalf.
TRADEcho is able to route regulatory trade reports to an Approved Publication Arrangement (APA) in the UK or the EU whichever our client chooses.

SETTLEMENTS

Often undervalued, we appreciate that if trades do not settle efficiently this results in extra work for all concerned. Particularly in light of CSDR. We can pre-match through OMGEO CTM and settle via Clearstream, CREST, DTC and Euroclear along with most other CSDs. We have our own experienced in-house settlements team who are there to assist with any issues that may arise.
