MarketAxess approved as recognised market operator by Monetary Authority of Singapore


MarketAxess Holdings, the operator of a global electronic trading platform for fixed-income securities, and the provider of market data and post-trade services, has been approved by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) to operate as a Recognised Market Operator (RMO). 

This approval marks a significant milestone for the continuing growth of MarketAxess in the region as Asian-based investor and dealer clients are rapidly adopting the efficiencies electronic trading solutions can bring to the market, with the number of active firms in Asia growing over 50% in the last 12 months.
“MarketAxess has a track record of repeated innovation in fixed income products, including our all-to-all Open Trading marketplace,” says Christophe Roupie (pictured), Head of Europe and Asia for MarketAxess and Trax. “We are deeply committed to our growing community of buy- and sell-side clients across the globe and recognise the unique opportunity in Asia. Receiving our RMO approval further demonstrates our commitment to expanding our business in the region and investing in local capabilities. We are looking forward to strengthening our footprint in Asia and demonstrating our abilities to making the markets more efficient and liquid.”
MarketAxess has offices in Singapore and Hong Kong, serving the institutional fixed income community through a deep pool of liquidity in hard-currency and local-market debt. MarketAxess supports 22 global local currency markets, including Asia local-market trading in Singapore Dollar, Malaysian Ringgit, Thai Baht, Indonesian Rupiah, Philippine Peso and Chinese Yuan. MarketAxess also recently reported that during the second quarter of 2017, the first trades in Chinese Government Bonds were completed on the platform.
