MarketAxess builds out flagship e-trading platform for loans functionality

The platform operator plans to extend its all-to-all corporate bond trading expertise to the loan market, which lags other fixed-income instruments in both tech adoption and the level of transparency.

MarketAxess is planning to expand Open Trading, its electronic corporate bond trading platform, to include leveraged/syndicated loans in early 2022. Open Trading is currently used by more than 1,000 buy- and sell-side firms acting as liquidity providers, and utilizes an all-to-all trading protocol, which enables the buy side to trade among one another or with the sell side in an anonymous pool and with no limits on the number of dealers trading firms can interact with simultaneously.
