Boston, September 1, 2021 – While certain aspects of the fixed income markets have been slow to electronify, in recent years, an eye toward innovation has been pronounced—driven further by dynamics linked to market structure shifts resulting from the pandemic. Underpinning the recent desire for more e-trading, automation, and price transparency is data. Against the backdrop of the market’s push toward low-touch and efficient workflows, the aggregation, cleaning, and consumption of fixed income data has been both a shining point and an area still in need of many improvements.
This report focuses on the mindset of fixed income market participants and their perceptions and use of today’s fixed income data. It is based on a series of polls from 580 attendees during the recent Fixed Income Leaders Summit, hosted by Worldwide Business Research from June 22 to June 23, 2021, to gauge market sentiment across a number of subjects.
