The DESK

Website: http://www.fi-desk.com

We need to talk about bonds. Liquidity has been sucked out of the credit markets by regulation. It can only be replaced by a structural change in the secondary market, or a change to the issuance model in the primary market. Neither is happening right now. Fixed income trading costs are opaque at best, so achieving best execution in the bond market seems an impossible task. Wedded to illiquidity, a lack of price transparency could threaten to impact issuers.

The DESK provides buy-side traders with precise detail on the macro-drivers, events and plans that are shaping liquidity and price discovery in fixed income markets. Published quarterly, The DESK delivers facts from the frontline of trading, opinion on the potential of new initiatives and support for fixed income desks across investment firms. Talking about bonds starts at The DESK.


The Trade

THE TRADE is a quarterly publication focused on institutional global securities trading. With a worldwide circulation of 8,000+, THE TRADE is sent to named buy-side traders and operational heads of buy-side institutions and their sell-side counterparts. THE TRADE contains proprietary data on transaction measurement, including broker rankings and reports on key development areas from crossing and DMA to algorithmic trading and innovation in OMS.
