In Conversation with TABB Group

As the Fixed Income market grows more and more electronic, systems must communicate across a widening range of instruments, venues, and transaction types, creating an impediment to efficiency.

With more than 200 electronic trading venues across bonds, swaps, futures and repo, each with unique APIs, this increasing fragmentation is a growing challenge.

Speaking with TABB Group’s George Bollenbacher, head of Fixed Income research, Steve explains how TransFICC is helping firms connect to the various venues via a single API, including for market data, order placement and post-trade reporting, as well as the challenges. They also discuss the buy-side best ex challenge, keeping up with constant technology changes, and the evolution of the electronic fixed income ecosystem.
