MarketAxess offers electronic trading of local and external debt for institutional firms based in the U.S., Latin America and Canada.

MarketAxess is an industry leader in the electronic trading of global fixed income products, including U.S. high-grade, high yield, emerging markets, agencies, European bonds and credit default swaps (CDS).

Institutional investors and dealers located in the Americas can request competitive, executable bids or offers from multiple market-makers simultaneously, and execute trades with the firm of their choice.
