Government Reference Publication

Dear Mr. Clark: The Bond Market Association(The Association) is pleased to offer comments and perspective on the evolution of e-commerce and electronic trading in the fixed-income securities markets in the context of the Commission's recent workshop on Emerging Issues for Competition Policy in the World of E-Commerce on May 7 and 8, 2001. Over the past several years, participants in the fixed-income markets in the U.S. and Europe have witnessed the rapid development of electronic platforms designed to facilitate the issuance and trading of bonds and other fixed-income and credit related financial products. Traditional market participants such as dealers and inter-dealer brokers as well as start-up entrepreneurs have invested heavily in the development, deployment and marketing of electronic trading systems. Currently, The Association estimates that over 80 such platforms have been announced or deployed. Electronic trading offers market participants the promise of reducing costs, improving market liquidity and transparency, and attracting new classes of investors to the market. Consequently, while we are still at a very early stage, electronic trading holds the possibility of benefiting consumers of fixed-income products by increasing the overall competitiveness of the bond markets. Thus far, the adoption of electronic trading has been most widespread in the markets for certain commoditized, liquid products such as government securities and in the inter-dealer market. It is likely, however, that investors and others will gradually and eventually employ electronic trading platforms more extensively in the markets for other, less liquid products as well.
