SociÃ©tÃ© GÃ©nÃ©raleâs decision reflects the continued progress of BondVision, particularly in France, since the introduction on the system of additional French instruments such as the ERAPâs EMTN program and the inflation-linked securities issued by CADES. The recent launch of the EuroMTS Index, the real time pan European government bond indices widely tracked by French fund managers, has also brought increased interest in BondVision as it will integrate trading capabilities able to easily replicate the index.
FrÃ©dÃ©ric Desclaux, Head of Fixed Income for Institutional Sales at SociÃ©tÃ© GÃ©nÃ©rale said: "We are very pleased to join BondVision and to contribute to the growth of the Dealer-to-Client market in France and in the rest of Europe. Joining BondVision allows us to easily extend our prices from the MTS network to the European buy-side."
As the client base and turnover volumes grow, BondVision remains committed to its primary objective of offering a trading solution that responds to the needs of Institutional Clients. Fund managers have been accounting for 75% of the total turnover on the system with the remaining 25% divided between supranational entities and bank counterparties who use BondVision as a complementary tool to the MTS Markets. Clients access and trade on BondVision free of charge.
