280 CapMarkets launches Bond Navigator platform


280 CapMarkets, a fixed income technology platform for advisers, has launched a new technology platform, Bond Navigator, a cloud-based application designed to provide greater transparency into bond pricing, availability and characteristics.

For many independent investment advisors, gaining access to a broad universe of bonds is challenging. Large institutions control or manage a majority of the individual securities, strongly influence bond prices, and hold trading insights within proprietary systems. These factors can inhibit an advisor’s ability to compare available bonds in the market, and can also limit pricing transparency.
Bond Navigator addresses these challenges by aggregating data from multiple market sources to give greater insight into buying, selling and managing bonds. It provides access to thousands of wholesale bond offerings and liquidity solutions, with comprehensive pre-trade price transparency to assist investment advisors in managing their clients’ fixed income portfolios with confidence. 280 CapMarkets’ pre-trade data, combined with post-trade 280 Best X™ documentation, also supports best execution requirements.
“Bond Navigator levels the playing field for independent advisors,” says Gurinder S Ahluwalia (pictured), chief executive officer. “It empowers advisors with enhanced market visibility, carefully curated offerings, and access to a breadth of products and insights on the markets. Trade requests initiated through Bond Navigator are executed by our experienced team of fixed income professionals, who work to achieve the most competitive price for every order using the full resources of our three desks. This service model, uniquely binding deep fixed income expertise with a sophisticated technology platform, can help independent advisors save valuable time, grow their business, and feel confident in their ability to support best execution requirements.”
“Bond Navigator brings together data from multiple sources onto a single, easy-to-use screen, providing real-time trading information and pricing transparency,” says Prescott Nasser, chief technology officer. “Advisors now have visibility to a full range of bond offerings, by issuer or series, along with historical trading data, so that they can confidently select the right bonds for their client at the right price.”
