Transforming Today’s Fixed-Income Markets

Fixed income markets have an acute need for better analytics. Amid growing digitization, a proliferation of data means many buy-side firms are grappling with how to best process, analyze and glean insights from the information they consume.

Some have turned to evaluated pricing and advanced technology to find liquidity and navigate volatility, amid an uncertain macroeconomic outlook. Others are charting a hybrid approach to data management. So how has the role of pre-trade information changed? And what’s next in terms of cloud and API adoption? Our sponsored report with Coalition Greenwich examines the evolution of data and technology use by buy-side firms.
ICE Trading Analytics: helping transform fixed income markets

Executive summary

The need for more and better analytics to deal with fixed-income data has arrived. As the volume of information linked to bonds has grown, investment firms are looking for new and improved ways to manage that information and gain insights from the data they consume. One area that has benefited from the onset of innovative tools is pretrade analytics. Buy-side firms are turning to evaluated pricing and advanced technology to help them find liquidity and navigate a host of macroeconomic factors, including enhanced volatility, higher rates, inflation, and other frictions. This report focuses on our recent study, which was designed to foster a better understanding of the evolving role of data and technology being used by buy-side investment firms.
