Due to the increasingly complex nature of U.S. Corporate bond trading, traditional workflows and trading mechanisms are being supplanted by data/analytics-based solutions and intermediaries. This new data-focused step in the evolution of the U.S. credit markets provides an opportunity for all sides of the market to better utilize/innovate upon legacy technology and data: IDBs, pricing vendors, sell side market makers, as well as the buy side.
This report lays the groundwork for how the US credit market has arrived at this data inflection point. This report is designed as a supplementary piece of research to the US Corporate Bond Electronification: How it’s Altering Price Mechanisms report. The two complimentary reports can be purchased as a package here.
