The range of securities has also expanded with the introduction of bonds from the new EU member states. Tradable securities now number over 1,000, the largest amongst all B2C electronic marketplaces. BondVision will be listing sovereign issues from Latin America, the Middle East and Asia, enhancing its offering of euro-denominated securities to its client base.
In addition, a new technical enhancement, an API solution for clients and salespeople, was recently introduced. This unique feature in the B2C market allows for full integration of execution with both pre- and post-trading activities. As a result of this API solution, independent software vendors together with portfolio and order management system software providers are now offering BondVision participants the efficiencies and cost reductions already available to MTS inter-dealer participants.
