Fixed Income Electronic Trading 2013

Press Release   •   Jun 05, 2013 17:19 IST

June 05 2013 : Bharat Book Bureau presents the new report "Fixed Income Electronic Trading 2013: How Banks Can Prepare for Changes in the Market Structure" Achieving specialist status as a fixed income liquidity provider means banks must first understand how they are positioned in the market.

The global financial crisis has caused liquidity in the fixed income market to stall and fragment across a number of trading venues. New capital markets regulations are changing the fixed income market’s structure, forcing established trading venue operators to prepare for changes that will incentivise the emergence of new competitors.

The report finds that leading banks must adapt to this changing landscape by differentiating themselves from competitors and become specialist providers of liquidity in the fixed income markets. In order to achieve this, enhancements to existing sales and trading tools that emphasise cost-effective access to bonds liquidity and IRD liquidity as well as enhancements to various areas of post-trade functionality, must be made.

Achieving specialist status as a fixed income liquidity provider means banks must first understand how they are positioned in the market. To aid in this effort, the report creates a business and technology maturity model that banks can use to prepare for changes to the market structure for bonds and IRD dealing. This maturity model can be used to assess the adaptability of a bank’s fixed income dealing business and drive decisions in the development or adaption of technology solutions that will allow that business to grow in an increasingly competitive future landscape.
