Related Topics

Man Numeric, the quant investment arm of Man Group, the world’s largest listed hedge fund manager, is aiming to execute 100% of its high-yield and investment-grade bond trades via digital platforms within two years, according to a report by Bloomberg.

The firm is currently executing 90% of such trades digitally. Just a year ago, only about a third of its junk bond trades were electronic, with the rest happening on the telephone or via a messaging platform.

The report cites research from Coalition Greenwich as confirming that Man Numeric’s shift towards electronic bond trading is part of a wider industry trend with about 40% of all high-grade trades currently being executed online, up from less than a tenth a decade ago.
