SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- 280 CapMarkets® is simplifying the process for independent advisors to document best execution for bond purchases and sales with its comprehensive 280 BestEx™ report, now available for all trades executed through 280 CapMarkets' BondNav® cloud-based software platform.
The 280 BestEx report is designed to assist advisors in fulfilling their best execution responsibilities by presenting the prevailing market for an individual bond at the time of trade, including:
- contemporaneous offers
- trade history
- other bonds offered from the issuer
- other bonds offered in the series
- documentation of the trader's process in support of best execution
"Satisfying today's regulatory requirement of best execution can be challenging and time-consuming," said Chuck Else, Principal, Osborne Partners Capital Management LLC. "BondNav simplifies this process, allowing us to maximize our business efficiency while addressing this requirement with confidence."
"BondNav is designed to provide better access, clarity and confidence to independent advisors who buy individual bonds," said Gurinder S. Ahluwalia, CEO of 280 CapMarkets. "In a market that is notoriously opaque, we're giving advisors broad access, pre-trade price clarity, and bond market context. In contrast to other trading platforms, BondNav supports an advisor's best execution requirement, and provides a gateway to our institutional trading, new issue offerings, and a full-service advisor liaison desk."
