Media Partners

  • Best Execution

    Best Execution

    Best Execution reviews the issues that impact the achievement of best execution in the global securities markets throughout the trading lifecycle (from pre-trade to trade execution to post-trade). Increasingly driven by regulation we report on the seismic shifts that are occurring in capital markets across asset classes, with a key focus on the cutting-edge technology solutions and services that are needed to meet these changes.



  • The DESK

    The DESK

    We need to talk about bonds. Liquidity has been sucked out of the credit markets by regulation. It can only be replaced by a structural change in the secondary market, or a change to the issuance model in the primary market. Neither is happening right now. Fixed income trading costs are opaque at best, so achieving best execution in the bond market seems an impossible task. Wedded to illiquidity, a lack of price transparency could threaten to impact issuers.

    The DESK provides buy-side traders with precise detail on the macro-drivers, events and plans that are shaping liquidity and price discovery in fixed income markets. Published quarterly, The DESK delivers facts from the frontline of trading, opinion on the potential of new initiatives and support for fixed income desks across investment firms. Talking about bonds starts at The DESK.

  • ICMA


    ICMA is the trade association for the international capital market with 550 member firms from 60 countries, including banks, issuers, asset managers, infrastructure providers and law firms. It performs a crucial central role in the market by providing industry-driven standards and recommendations for issuance, trading and settlement in international fixed income and related instruments. ICMA liaises closely with regulatory and governmental authorities, both at the national and supranational level, helping to ensure that financial regulation promotes the efficiency and cost effectiveness of the capital market.




    ECSDA, the European Central Securities Depositories Association, represents 40 national and international central securities depositories (CSDs) across 36 European countries. The association provides a forum for European CSDs to exchange views and take forward projects of mutual interest. It aims to promote a constructive dialogue between the CSD community, market participants, European public authorities and all other stakeholders looking to achieve an optimal regulatory framework for clearing and settlement. CSDs are financial market infrastructures which act as the first point of entry for newly issued securities and subsequently ensure the settlement and safekeeping of these securities. They thus play a vital role in supporting safe and efficient securities transactions, whether domestic cross-border. More information on ECSDA is available at http://ecsda.eu
