Company Description

MarketAxess brings over 10 years of unparalleled trading, market data and technology innovation to the global institutional credit markets. Electronic Credit Trading MarketAxess was formed in April of 2000 in response to investors' need for a single trading platform with easy access to multi-dealer competitive pricing in a wide range of credit products. MarketAxess has since expanded and deepened its trading network with North America's premier institutional investors, which include investment advisers, mutual funds, insurance companies, public and private pension funds, bank portfolios and hedge funds, and leading broker-dealers, both primary dealers and regional firms. MarketAxess offers dealers significant presence in secondary markets, providing a broad base of credit securities and deep pool of liquidity for our institutional investor clients. The U.S. trading system supports fully-disclosed electronic trading in high-grade corporate bonds, high yield/crossover bonds, emerging markets bonds, U.S. agency securities, structured products, preferred stock and credit default swaps (CDS). MarketAxess Europe Limited, the wholly-owned U.K. subsidiary of MarketAxess Holdings Inc., operates in London and first launched European secondary trading in U.S. dollar and Euro-denominated Eurobonds in 2001. Since then, the platform has added trading in other European credit products including bonds issued in Pounds, Sterling, and floating rate notes (FRNs) and has since successfully expanded into sovereigns, supras, agency and covered bonds. MarketAxess Europe Limited was the first platform in Europe to offer this capability for corporate bonds. As of 2006, European institutional clients can access U.S. credit liquidity, provided they have established trading relationships with U.S. dealers. In 2010, MarketAxess expanded its credit trading platform to include institutional investors in the Asia Pacific region. Central banks, sovereign wealth funds, pension funds and asset and wealth managers are able to trade U.S. and European corporate bonds, Asian credits, emerging markets bonds and CDS with MarketAxess' global network of broker dealers. MarketAxess is a Recognized Market Operator in Singapore and an Authorized Automated Trading Service in Hong Kong. MarketAxess maintains its headquarters in New York and has offices in London, Chicago and Salt Lake City, Hong Kong and Singapore
