Euroclear teams up with Lyxor for fixed income liquidity tool

e-Data Liquidity to provide fixed income market participants with transparency and analysis tools.

Euroclear and Lyxor Asset Management have teamed up to launch a tool for fixed income to help investors analyse liquidity.

The tool, known as e-Data Liquidity, will allow fixed income market participants to measure liquidity under increasing regulatory requirements.

Euroclear’s global head of funds and capital markets Stephan Pouyat, explained how the current market environment is prompting the buy-side “to better manage their asset portfolios and strengthen their balance sheets.”

He said: “e-Data is a modular tool and the liquidity module that provides key indicators founded on our neutral settlement data and presented in its simplest form.”

Lyxor’s co-head of sovereign bonds investments Jean Sayegh, added: “By teaming up with Euroclear we are participating in the current regulatory drive for market transparency and providing fixed income investors with an innovative tool helping them better manage their portfolios.”
