TABB Group Announces ‘Fixed Income 2018: An Evolutionary Tipping Point’

Highly-Regarded Event for Leading Thinkers and Innovators in Bond Markets

New York, New York, UNITED STATES

NEW YORK, Sept. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TABB Group, the international research, advisory and consulting firm focused on capital markets and a leader in hosting thought leadership events, announces its Fixed Income 2018: An Evolutionary Tipping Point. The conference will be held on January 23, 2018 at World Stages in New York City.

The Fixed Income Summit will feature an Executive Leadership Panel chaired by Bob Michele, Chief Investment Officer and Head of the Global Fixed Income, Currency and Commodities group at JP Morgan. The Panel will discuss the market changing environment and what it means for the investor/dealer relationship. Other topics on the agenda include:

  • Coming to America: The Impact of MiFiD II.
  • Data Management Solutions: Not What You Do, But How You Do It.
  • Coexistence or Extinction in OTC bond markets?
  • Marketplace Convergence: The Devil is in the Details 

A recent TABB Group Research report -- US Corporate Bond Liquidity: The Art of the “Order” authored by Anthony Perrotta – examined how structural changes -- including, regulation, technological innovation, and investment behavior -- are changing market dynamics. “Market-makers are now augmenting their trading desks to adapt to the growing demand, building pricing engines capable of providing continuous liquidity. There is much work to be done, but executable models are slowly finding a place in an evolving corporate bond trading landscape,” Perrotta wrote.

TABB Group estimates that the US bond market alone represents $40 trillion and the interest rate swap market around $370 trillion. Fixed income markets are still grappling with regulation-led restructuring aimed at moving large parts of the market onto trading venue and through centralized clearing and reporting frameworks.
