Empowering Fixed Income Sales and Trading

A laser focus on helping our fixed income broker-dealer clients do more riskless business

Today there are many bond market participants suggesting that the traditional dealer led market needs to change completely. We respectfully disagree. The market is filled with “visionaries” who want to re-imagine the bond market without the primacy of dealers, replacing you with all-to-all or buy-side only systems. The message they are espousing is that dealers don’t provide much value to the market. To which we say - “Nonsense!”

It is true that dealers as a whole have less balance sheet to facilitate trades. But why does this require a dramatic change in market structure? After all, balance sheet is largely used to warehouse bonds on their way from one client to another. By reducing the need to warehouse bonds, or by closing out unwanted positions, the market can remain dealer centric, just using less balance sheet. The key is to leverage existing information to increase riskless and risk reducing business while preserving the existing dealer-centric market structure.

Codestreet has spent 10 years helping fixed income broker-dealers do more traditional riskless and risk-reducing business with their buy-side clients. We exploit the network effect across your desk to find the other side of the trade using technology, allowing you to do more riskless/risk reducing trades while minimizing the need to deploy capital.

We have a proven track record on dozens of trading desks at both large and small firms with over 81% of all users claiming that Codestreet enables them to do more riskless trades every month.

Experience Matters

Members of the Codestreet team have been instrumental in building the most successful fixed income trading platforms to date and our systems have incorporated feedback from hundreds of traders and salespeople over the past decade. Our customers in return are glowing in their praise for the system.

"Teamwork is so valuable that we will not pay sales credit to a salesperson unless they are capturing their client inquiries in the system." - HEAD OF FI SALES & TRADING

Codestreet maximizes your ability to do more riskless business by helping find trades both across your desk and with other dealers. Our patented approach for finding the other side of the trade allows you to find liquidity in the street without giving up your hand. The result is dramatically more riskless/risk-reducing business for the dealer community, less need to warehouse bonds and no change in market structure.

While other technology vendors have spent the past 10+ years shrinking your margins and putting you in competition, Codestreet has been relentlessly focused on helping you do business the way you want.
