Bondcube Fixed Income Trading Platform Goes Live

Bondcube, the Fixed Income trading platform, announced Tuesday that it has gone live in Europe and the US with full match, negotiation and trading functionality for all to all bond trading.

Bondcube takes indications of interest (IOIs) from both buy-side and sell-side participants. Buy-side to buy-side match anonymously and cross through an intermediary. Buy-side to sell-side trade on a fully disclosed identity basis. All participants can bulk upload their indications of interest, where they indicate a security, direction and minimum and maximum trading size, without the need for a specific price or spread. These IOIs remain anonymous and invisible on the platform, either on an active or historic basis, until a match is found. Only the participants that have the offsetting interest in that security are notified and eligible to begin a negotiation for a trade.

UBS Investment Bank is the global trading intermediary at launch. The FX, Rates and Credit (FRC) Execution Services unit will facilitate the settlement of trades by Bondcube participants by providing intermediation services.

Bondcube Limited is a crossing network regulated by the FCA. Bondcube Inc. is a broker/dealer and an Automated Trading System (ATS) in the US.

“We started two years ago with the unique and innovative concept that the buy-side has vast amounts of liquidity that RFQ has failed to execute and no one can see that liquidity,” says Paul Reynolds, Bondcube CEO. “Our very supportive first adopters have already proven our concept works at a level that exceeds our expectations. We have taken that concept further now by enabling website visitors to load their lists of securities and receive email alerts when the platform has an indication of interest in one of them.”
