The world's largest asset class in fixed income, operates with the worst data.
Technology has revolutionised the equity markets with electronic trading, quant algos and instantaneous news. However, in debt and fixed income, the picture is completely different. Trades are placed over the phone, news is slow, and information is imperfect. Billions of dollars of capital is allocated to companies, projects and investments all over the world - making the best decisions on where to deploy it, requires the best information.
The debt capital markets behave like it’s still the 1980s, it is the last to be technologised - our mission is to make it happen.
