This transition is characterised by a slow shift away from traditional voice trading and toward the use of automation technology.

This report highlights the resistance that still exists in 2024 within many CIB trading franchises to the adoption of repo trading business processes and workflows that are predicated on the future formation of a more exchange-like marketplace for the instruments or products in which historical differences between dealer-to-client and dealer-to-dealer trades or transactions are streamlined.

The report evaluates vendor-provided repo e-trading solutions by focusing on an assessment of the sophistication of the functional capabilities offered by their sales-trader and trader user interfaces, sale-trader workflow tools, the breadth and depth of their D2C, D2D and Triparty markets connectivity coverage and the ability of pricing engine components or modules to handle the market and trade data produced by activities within those environments in a variety of innovative ways.

This report reviews the findings of a survey of the functional capabilities of two sellside repo e-trading vendor offerings. Specifically:

  • Ion The ION Anvil Solution for Secured Funding; and
  • valantic Transaction Solutions GmbH (valantic FSA) valantic FSA Fixed Income Trading Platform.
