According to Steven Sadoff, chief technical officer at Bondbook, this means that the new trading platform is more of a fixed-income initiative than a technological one. "Yes, we're using technology but it's really about changing the way the fixed-income world works today," he says.

It covers investment-grade and high-yield corporate bonds and is fully searchable by credit rating, coupon, maturity and sector.
