NYSE bond trading platform

Filed under: etrading — holky @ 11:01 am

finextra lets us know that Nyse Euronext is working on the development of a bond trading platform that can handle fixed-interest securities from both the US and Europe, according to a report by French newspaper L’Agefi.  The report, which cites a source close to the project, says that the transatlantic exchange plans to launch the platform – which will manage both corporate and government bonds – by the end of the first quarter of 2008.

Will be interesting to watch how (/if) this is pitched to european investors.



  1. I heard about this early last year. As I understand it, they plan to go for retail.

  2. The focus is not really on retail… that was the cover for the SEC approval. They have been trying to get every major dealer, clearing shops, and yes hedged funds to participate. So far…little up take… 2008 should see some interest as most of the Corporate bond trading desks will be turned on their heads in 2008.
