When Buying Bonds
Gaining access to a broad universe of bonds is challenging. Market opacity inhibits an advisor’s ability to compare offerings and limits pricing clarity and context.
BondNav® is a software-based price discovery and trading platform that connects independent advisors to the fixed income markets. It is free to access and provides a gateway to our institutional trading, new issue offerings, and a full-service advisor liaison desk.
Extensive search criteria allow advisors to select from tens of thousands of bonds from electronic communication networks, Street offerings, full-service dealers, institutions, clearing & custodial offerings, and new issues.
Comprehensive pre-trade data allows advisors to navigate structural and credit characteristics to make more informed choices for their clients.
The convenience of a web-based platform, combined with the experience of a full service capital markets team that is dedicated to securing and documenting the most competitive price for every order.
In an opaque fixed income market, it can be difficult for advisors to feel confident in fulfilling their best execution requirement. BondNav helps by aggregating bond offerings from multiple market sources onto a single, easy-to-use screen, providing real-time trading information and price clarity.
In addition, when advisors place an order through BondNav, they receive comprehensive best execution documentation for every trade at no additional cost. Our 280 BestEx™ report gives advisors an easy-to-read summary of the prevailing market at the time of the trade, as well as the actions taken to achieve best execution.
