Broadridge’s LTX launches BondGPT to help on bond market pricing, selection, and liquidity
“By increasing the use of data and applications like BondGPT, market participants can inform and expedite vital pricing decisions, facilitate counterparty selection, and broaden liquidity access.”
Broadridge’s LTX, the subsidiary focused on electronic trading for fixed income, has launched BondGPT, an application powered by OpenAI GPT-4 that answers bond-related questions and assists users in their identification of corporate bonds on the LTX platform.
The generative AI application is now available to LTX clients to enhance liquidity and price discovery and fuel trading in the $10.3 trillion U.S. corporate bond market.
The BondGPT solution is expected to benefit asset managers, hedge funds, and dealers the most.
BondGPT incorporates real-time liquidity information from the LTX Liquidity Cloud
BondGPT is incorporating real-time liquidity information from the LTX Liquidity Cloud to simplify workflows and bring further efficiency to users in their bond selection and portfolio construction processes.
The Liquidity Cloud is the LTX network of anonymous real-time buy- and sell-side indications of interest which include CUSIP, direction, price, and size.
BondGPT offers a large language model (LLM) chat function that allows users to ask questions and identify corporate bonds on the LTX trading platform based upon the user’s criteria.
The conversational interface leverages LTX’s Liquidity Cloud and patent-pending bond similarity technology, which filters based upon a vast set of user-adjusted parameters to assist in identifying bonds with similar characteristics to meet traders’ real-time liquidity needs.
