E-Bond Trading to Bounce Back, Claims Report

After three years of intense competition, bankruptcies and consolidations, the electronic fixed income market has stabilized and is poised for a new phase, according to a report by Celent Communications. Commenting on the findings, Sang Lee, manager of Celent’s securities and investments practice, said: ‘The e-bond market is no longer just about trade execution. We expect to see increased efforts in creating a full-STP solution for the fixed income community.’ The research, which examines the growth of the U.S. fixed income market and development of the electronic fixed income market, noted that, after a couple of years of uncertainty, it has become clear that the electronic fixed income market is here for the long haul and the real competition appears to be just beginning.
