Restoring trust in bond markets

Published on 23 November 2022

The impact of the UK’s ‘mini-budget’ shone a light on the challenges that can exist in trading in and out of positions within government bond markets. Following a year of pandemic recovery, war, inflation and rapid rate rises, faith in the market’s ability to support liquidity transfer has been shaken.

To discuss how trust can be restored, Angelo Proni, CEO of market operator MTS, outlines how the main players in the market can be supported and reinforced through a more transparent and accessible electronic liquidity pool.

Through constant investment in innovative new ways to deliver data and trading tools, he says MTS is pulling together more sophisticated products that underpin pre-trade decision making and new ways of trading – including via automation – to make markets more resilient.
