Boston, May 18, 2021 While portfolio trading, or the simultaneous execution of a group of bonds, is hardly a new concept, the practice is turning long-lived trading methods and market structure upside-down in recent years.

The ability to increase the certainty of a trade lies at the heart of portfolio trading and has been a major selling point for its adoption, saving both time and investment risk.

This report explores a series of case studies focused on the adoption and use of portfolio trading for fixed income investing. Aite Group analysts interviewed eight buy-side and sell-side firms to better understand trends and challenges in the market.
