New Systems Fuel US Fixed Income E-Trading Growth

Online fixed-income trading in the US is growing at a faster pace than overall fixed-income trading in the US, according to research by Greenwich Associates. The report found that electronic trading volume grew by more than 25% in 2004, compared with a 20% increase in overall fixed-income trading volume. ‘Much of the growth in e-trading is attributable to new systems,’ says Greenwich Associates consultant Tim Sangston. ‘In particular, a significant part of the growth has to do with the increasing penetration of e-trading platforms into the corporate bond market.’
