Fixed Income Investing: Implications for the Buy-side

As fixed income data continues to grow, the quality of information and ability to consume and integrate it upstream and downstream are becoming more important. While there has been a lot of progress towards more standardization and the aggregation of such data, the fixed income markets remain fragmented, creating several challenges for the front office including: complexity in trading, interoperability of systems, keeping up with technology, as well as knock-on effects of an evolving market structure and work culture. All the while, market participants are managing macro forces not seen in several decades that have resulted in persistent volatility and uncertainty.
