Proquote announces today that it is now offering real-time pricing and trading connectivity to the London Stock Exchange's new electronic order book for retail-size bonds.
Introduced in response to strong private investor demand for greater access to fixed income, the new order book offers continuous two-way pricing for trading in UK gilts and retail-size corporate bonds on-exchange for the first time.
Brokers using Proquote's electronic FIX links or front end trading applications, are able to trade the new bonds on-book and with market makers via Proquote's extensive Retail Service Provider network.
Commenting on the announcement, David Tibbetts, Head of Proquote, said: "We are absolutely delighted to be able to offer Proquote clients access to the Exchange's new electronic order book for retail-size bonds. Today's announcement underlines our commitment to continue to expand the range of assets and markets Proquote offers access to, in line with the needs and demands of our customers."
