Credit markets round up: Double Dutch

Last month two interdealer brokers unveiled their participation as official venues for the trading of Dutch bonds.

The Dutch State Treasury Agency approved BGC and Icap’s BrokerTec in a move that reflects the liberalization of interdealer trading of euro government bonds.

euroMTS, which previously held a de facto monopoly on such activity, has yet to reveal details of its controversial plan to allow non-banks to trade on its platform. Liquidity has dried up on the platform as dealers withdraw capital from expensive secondary market-making commitments (see covered bond story on page 29).

In January, the Belgian debt management agency approved BrokerTec and BGC as a platform on which its primary dealers can meet their market making obligations.
