MTS BondsPro Expands in Mexican Bond Markets
The MTS BondsPro electronic trading platform is now available to Mexican institutional clients in Latin America, delivered through a marketing agreement with Marco Polo Securities.
Fixed income traders will have electronic order book access to Mexican peso-denominated corporate and treasury bonds, and will become part of the international BondsPro trading community of more than 600 broker dealers and buy-side clients participating in the BondsPro all-to-all order book.
This move is part of a growing focus by MTS on emerging markets trading, which has resulted in MTS BondsPro volume from emerging markets more than doubling from 2018 to 2019.
David Parker, Head of MTS Markets International, said: "Given the heightened market volatility in recent months, it is more important than ever that fixed income traders globally have access to robust tools. We are delighted to extend access to our rapidly growing MTS BondsPro global fixed income community to a wider set of global market participants. This is a sign of growing global electronic volumes and a reflection of the increasing appeal of the all-to-all trading model for fixed income traders. We look forward to improving our access and service to our clients while welcoming new joiners to the BondsPro community."
Chava Salvador Palma, Head of Sales Latin America, Marco Polo Securities, said: "Marco Polo has a long history of innovation in the electronification of Latin American markets. MTS BondsPro is a new liquidity venue for Latin American fixed income institutional investors and we are excited to partner with a global brand and proven technology leader as we return to our mission of bringing efficiencies to Latin America's capital markets."
