Eurobond Trading Platform Highlights
In February 2013 MarketAxess completed its acquisition of Xtrakter Ltd., a leading provider of regulatory transaction reporting, financial market data and trade matching services to the European securities markets. In May 2014 Xtrakter rebranded to Trax, consolidating the firm’s suite of data and post-trade solutions under the reinvigorated Trax brand. Together, MarketAxess and Trax are uniquely placed to help their clients prepare for the broad-reaching changes taking place in the European fixed income markets due to incoming regulations. The combination of extensive market and reference data, a broad suite of protocols for trade execution and robust post- trade services mean that MarketAxess and Trax can offer dealers and investors a full suite of valuable tools to help manage their fixed income trading and investment risk.
