Cloud-based API connectivity for fixed income and derivative markets trading venues.

THE INDUSTRY CHALLENGE

Market and liquidity fragmentation continues to be a growing concern for bond market participants. The number of electronic venues and trading protocols continues to rise. As of January 2017, the number of trading platforms for fixed income trading stood at 128 with approximately 220 different ways of plugging into these networks. In addition, MiFID II continues to push bond trading towards electronic venues and requires much more granular transaction reporting data to be submitted to regulators.
