Since MarketAxess' inception, total global trading volume has exceeded $3 trillion. In this time, MarketAxess has introduced numerous electronic trading innovations including:

Straight Through Processing (STP) tools allow clients to create, negotiate and execute orders, deliver trade allocations to dealer counterparties and receive allocation acknowledgements - all with seamless front-to-back office system integration. While STP connectivity can help investor clients to realize the full benefits of electronic trading, MarketAxess also offers API (application program interface) solutions to the dealer community.
