Best Execution Confidence

It’s difficult for investment advisors to feel confident comparing bonds when they don’t know if they’re seeing all available bonds. The market lacks transparency to give advisors confidence that they’ve obtained the best price for their purchase or sale. The duty to determine and document best execution takes valuable time away from their clients and their business.

BondNav addresses these challenges directly by bringing together data from multiple market sources onto a single, easy-to-use screen, providing real-time trading information and pricing transparency. This comprehensive pre-trade data, combined with post-trade 280 BestEx™ documentation, supports an advisor’s best execution requirements.
