Project Boat Hits Big Wave?

Filed under: 2015, etrading — holky @ 6:13 am

EFN says a row has erupted between the banks involved in Project Boat over whether the proposed trade reporting system should be a for-profit commercial venture or spun off to Markit Group (a data and research group that is Project Boat’s business partner and owned by eight of the consortium), and suggests similar disagreements over Project Turquoise will follow.



  1. Oh dear, no too surprising. The surprise for LiquidityHub is that it has been reasonably trouble free….at this stage.

    Or are Fixed Income professionals that much more professional than their Equity counterparts? 😉

  2. Has HSBC (and RBS and BNPP) bought a stake in MarkIT now….. and is this connected to spinning off BOAT in that direction?
