NYSE Bonds & Bloomberg Deliver Integrated OMS for Fixed Income

March 12, 2012

NEW YORK — NYSE Euronext’s fixed income trading platform, NYSE
Bonds, and Bloomberg Trade Order Management Solutions (TOMS) now
offer sell-side fixed income dealers an integrated platform to
access the U.S. corporate bond market. Dealers using Bloomberg
TOMS, the leading order management platform for U.S. fixed
income securities, can now trade on the NYSE Bonds marketplace
via the Bloomberg Professional® service, which is used globally
by more than 310,000 subscribers.

On NYSE Bonds, institutional and executable orders entered by
NYSE members or sponsored participants are displayed on NYSE
Bonds’ order book and executed on a strict price/time priority.
Bloomberg TOMS integrates with NYSE Bonds via a FIX connection
that supports market data for price discovery and order
management services.

“We are pleased to work with Bloomberg TOMS to provide clients a
cost efficient, one stop solution to trading on NYSE Bonds,”
said Kevin Molloy, Managing Director, NYSE Euronext Fixed Income
Group. “Global dealers using Bloomberg TOMS can now make
markets, hit and lift markets and route customer orders directly
to NYSE Bonds. The connectivity this offering provides supports
our efforts to increase liquidity in the U.S. bond markets.”

This fully-integrated offering enables Bloomberg TOMS clients to
manage inventory, pricing, market making, risk and P&L as one
customizable workflow. In addition, users can optimize trading,
increase global distribution and improve operational efficiency.

Specific features of the offering include:

-Real-time view of NYSE Bonds markets with full depth of book

-Ability to hit/lift NYSE Bonds markets using Bloomberg TOMS

-Straight-Through-Processing (STP) of orders from NYSE Bonds to
Bloomberg TOMS and back office systems for efficient execution
and reporting

-Inventory acquisition from NYSE Bonds to fill open client
orders

-Contribution of executable orders from Bloomberg TOMS to NYSE
Bonds’ order book to provide liquidity

“Electronic trading in the fixed income market will continue to
accelerate in response to growing regulatory guidelines,” said
Michael Wood, Global Head of Bloomberg TOMS. “In order to
effectively compete, sell-side fixed income firms will need
connectivity to global liquidity platforms and wholesale
markets. By integrating the order management system into this
workflow, these firms are able to increase trade volumes and
improve operational efficiency.”

To celebrate this unique offering, representatives from
Bloomberg TOMS visited the NYSE to ring The Opening Bell(sm).
