MTS Markets International, part of the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG), and BondCliQ, a new corporate bond market data solution, have partnered to provide BondCliQ users with data from MTS BondsPro all-to-all electronic trading platform for corporate bonds.
BondCliQ offers US institutional investors access to high quality pre-trade and post-trade data for the institutional market. Pricing information from MTS BondsPro, an Alternative Trading System (ATS) will now be combined with transactional data and institutional quotes on the BondCliQ system to deliver a comprehensive real-time view of the entire US corporate bonds market.
Going forward, market participants will benefit from being able to consume MTS BondsPro pricing information while referencing institutional quotes through a single screen. This will enable them to monitor their corporate bond portfolios more effectively and better understand the liquidity profile of the market.
MTS BondsPro’s rich market data is sourced from a community of more than 300 broker dealers and 350 buy- side clients participating in its anonymous all-to-all order book. The platform connects markets across the US, Europe and Asia with a 22-hour trading day, providing traders access to over 20,000 bonds with live prices daily.
David Parker (pictured), Head of US Sales, MTS, says: “We are delighted to make our high quality corporate bond pricing information available to participants on the BondCliQ system. Market data is becoming increasingly critical to fixed income investors who rely on the availability of high quality and comprehensive data to drive trading strategies. We are pleased to work with BondCliQ to support traders with the critical information they need.”
Chris White, Chief Executive Officer, BondCliQ, says: “Truly understanding where the best bid and offer reside across different market makers is incredibly valuable to anyone serious about maximizing their returns in the corporate bond market. This partnership makes it easier for market participants to understand broad market movements and sector-wide activity while generating granular CUSIP-level insights, all in a traditionally opaque market.”
