US OTC Market Trends and Outlook: Fixed Income & Derivatives Trading 2021

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

In the lead-up to the 2020 COVID-19 market pandemonium, the US fixed income markets had each been experiencing unique evolutions with respect to workflows, technology, and market structure. One year later, and there is sufficient evidence to suggest that the temporary adaptations made in trading behavior to accommodate work-from-home mandates have become permanently transformative. For markets that once significantly lagged behind other fixed income markets (such as US Corporate Bonds), the uptick in adoption of electronic workflow and trading solutions over the past year and a half has been tremendous in comparison to the relatively low rate of utilization over the past decade.

This quarterly US OTC Market Trends and Outlook update is the first in a series of reports tracking an expanding list of critical factors affecting the over-the-counter (OTC) Fixed Income and Derivatives markets in a post-COVID landscape.

This report covers:

  • Trends in the US Fixed Income- including notional outstanding, issuance, trading volumes, and trading methods.
  • Trends in the interest rate derivatives (IRD) and index credit default swaps- both of which are significantly impacted by trends in US fixed income securities trading.
  • Observations about what these trends mean in the long and short-term.
