WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD FOR FIXED INCOME?
Over the past few years, there has been a quiet transformation in Fixed Income sales and trading. Regulatory and commercial drivers have ushered in a new era of digitization and automation, which has been supported and enabled by technological developments such as cloud and AI/ML. It’s no surprise then, that respondents’ priorities for 2022, in terms of their Fixed Income desk and portfolio strategies, reflect a clear continuation and evolution of Fixed Income trends. Reducing operational costs, investing in new electronic trading platforms and other technologies, and improving the understanding and management of firm-wide counterparty exposure and risk, all point to a continuation of the journey towards digitization and electronification.
