MTS Markets International, has integrated its SEC-registered electronic trading platform and ATS MTS BondsPro with EMS provider TradingScreen.
Market participants with access to MTS BondsPro will now be able to trade bonds electronically with the MTS BondsPro ATS directly within their TradingScreen interface. This highlights MTS’s ongoing focus to deliver modern solutions that seamlessly fit into clients’ chosen workflows.
TradingScreen provides centralised connectivity for clients looking to efficiently access the credit markets. By aggregating & normalising data, TradingScreen allows for the most effective interaction with top liquidity sources. Growing adoption by leading institutions speaks to their commitment to provide the most inclusive & bespoke applications.
MMI is dedicated to lowering the complexity and cost of accessing global credit market liquidity for its clients. This latest partnership advances the corporate bond marketplace by giving TradingScreen clients greater visibility and access to the extensive liquidity and pricing information available on BondsPro – liquidity on some 15,000 bonds daily from a global network of over 500 institutional participants.
Sean Dzugan, Head of US Buyside Sales at MTS, says: “Now more than ever, clients need an effective, streamlined solution that offers flexibility and ease of use. Collaborating with leading technology providers such as TradingScreen is a key part of our strategy to deliver first-class solutions to the buy-side. Fitting into the bespoke workflow that each customer develops on their own accord is critical. Through this partnership, we will continue to offer an accessible, integrated service for trading.”
Paul Reynolds Fixed Income at TradingScreen, says: “Our Fixed Income Buy-side EMS clients have a constant requirement for more Fixed Income Venues and high-integrity data. Our partnership with MTS brings actionable liquidity and high quality data to the forefront of our EMS. This will lead to more trading opportunities and better quality execution for our growing number of Buy-side clients. We recognize in MTS a high quality technology partner and expect further growth both regionally and in products.”
Spencer Lee, Founding Partner at Agilon Capital, LLC says: “I’m very excited to have MTS BondsPro join the Trading Screen family as the latest fully integrated liquidity source for corporate bonds. This connectivity will allow clients like myself to action their streaming prices and post our own levels into their orderbook – all directly from the Trading Screen blotter. The pricing information available on such a broad swath of corporate bonds on MTS will certainly increase pre-trade transparency and the integrated execution capabilities will shorten the time to fill while reducing operational risk.”
