How It Works

  • Bid and Offer

    Counterparties can post bids and/or offers for the collateral upgrade or downgrade trade structure

  • Negotiate and Agree

    Clients can negotiate and agree on fixed, evergreen and extendible trade baskets

  • Allocate and Communicate

    After the basket has been agreed, clients can allocate the underlying basket constituents or collateral and communicate it to one another

  • Manage Trade Lifecycle

    Throughout the tenure of the loan, clients can manage trade lifecycle events such as substitutions and transaction rolls


Market transparency and price discovery

Efficiency and organization of basket trading all in one place
