Fixed income traders have a new service to help increase connectivity. IPC Systems, the specialized communications and managed networks provider, has launched the Fixed Income Marketplace.
The connectivity solution gives bond market participants the ability to trade fixed income investments either electronically or via voice.
We are witnessing an unprecedented need for specialized technology and managed network services as market participants now require increased connectivity to diverse counterparties in order to drive the search for assets and conduct transactions, saidAnthony Perrotta, Partner and Global Head of Research and Consulting at Tabb Group, the financial markets research and strategic advisory firm.
Overall, the IPC service allows buyside firms to connect to their counterparties and source liquidity. IPC’s Financial Markets Network interconnects global financial centers and allows access to more than 6,000 market participant locations across 700 cities in more than 60 countries.
