Making an EMS enhance bond trading

Only 5% of buy-side bond traders use an execution management system (EMS), despite real advantages they can offer. These include enhanced timing and greater scaling up of trading activity. Opportunities are being missed today, as instrument selection can occur without the right levels of pre-trade information on liquidity and price being made available to the trading and portfolio management teams.

Gareth Coltman of MarketAxess and Tim Morbelli of Alliance Bernstein discuss how traders can build an EMS that works with the trading ecosystem, rather than in parallel to it, in order to boost better execution and alpha generation.
