COBI-Pricing LIVE offers protocol and system agnostic integration with venues and e-trading systems used by sell-side and buy-side trading desks through an open API enterprise software platform enabling electronic trading middleware. Overbond enables FIX protocol, counterparty, and market-place connectivity via its open API enterprise software platform and allows global fixed income trading desks to seamlessly integrate AI-driven bond pricing and liquidity scoring analytics into their workflow, regardless of which internal OMS, e-trading system, direct venue connectivity, cloud or on-premise solution they currently use. These API connections allow for internal system integration, pre-and post-trade external data vendor ingestion, and liquidity venue connectivity — ultimately creating a streamlined system capable of automating RFQ flow using Overbond’s AI engine.
Overbond has developed a real-time AI bond pricing engine that utilizes the latest data processing serverless cloud architecture from Amazon Web Services (AWS). This solution builds on Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics and AWS Lambda function parallel streams. As a result, Overbond offers both sell-side dealers and buy-side asset managers big data processing in real-time, historical benchmarking and AI-driven price modeling for corporate and government issued bonds. In addition, each of the functions are displayed from a single touchpoint with an average 2 milli-seconds refresh rate and maximum 2.5 second refresh rate.
Global fixed income traders can streamline their workflow and seamlessly harness the power of
