A more efficient route to buying new bonds

Published on 26 October 2022

Faced with a highly manual model for sharing information when buying newly issued bonds, asset managers and syndicate banks are keen to see a more automated and efficient workflow.

Nichola Hunter, global head of sales for fixed income at Liquidnet, says the impetus for change has led both buy and sell side firms to welcome Liquidnet’s new offering, which delivers new issue information more easily to buy-side client, then allows them to raise orders within their workflow and finally send those orders to syndicate banks.

Using Liquidnet’s infrastructure to build a deal shell directly in the buy-side firms’ order management system, the firm has successfully delivered its first order from a buy-side firm to a syndicate bank, validating its service fully.
