REUTERS TRADING FOR FIXED INCOME TO GO LIVE IN BRAZIL

São Paulo– Reuters (LSE: RTR, NASDAQ: RTRSY) has announced the launch of Reuters Trading for Fixed Income in Brazil. Reuters Trading for Fixed Income (RTFI) will give banks and financial institutions in Brazil the ability to trade fixed income securities over their Reuters desktop. Today’s announcement marks the expansion of RTFI into the Latin America region, with initial launches kicking off in Brazil and Mexico this year.

RTFI currently features tradable prices from fourteen leading fixed income banks with another fifteen expected to go live this year. Over the coming months, leading fixed income price makers are expected to add Brazilian domestic bonds and instruments to RTFI, bringing price takers a comprehensive service encompassing both international and national instruments.

The first price taker to go live on RTFI in South America was Credit Suisse Asset Management, which expects to grow its global liquidity for all fixed income international instruments. Carlos Bueno from Credit Suisse comments: “Reuters unifies its global expertise in providing content and electronic trading for the fixed income market in Brazil, through an easy and reliable platform.”

Ricardo Diniz, Managing Director of Reuters Brazil, believes RTFI will grow liquidity by connecting market makers and market takers. He said: “The launch of RTFI in Brazil reinforces the importance of the local and international fixed income market. It will result in the growth of access to liquidity and volumes being traded.”

Reuters held an RTFI launch event for the Brazilian market on Thursday, May 18th in São Paulo at Unique Hotel which featured a panel discussion around the fixed income market with panellists from the Brazilian National Treasury, Central Bank, Banco Itaú and Deustche Bank.
