Lombard Odier joins Neptune’s buy-side community

Clients will now have access to real-time axe data from Neptune across rates, investment grade, high yield and emerging markets bonds.

Fixed income axe provision platform, Neptune Networks, has added Geneva-based Lombard Odier to its expanding buy-side community.

As part of the collaboration, Lombard Odier will have access to Neptune’s axes across rates, investment grade, high yield and emerging markets bonds.

Trading and advisory users worldwide will utilise the data for the benefit of their end investor client base.

Lombard Odier’s clients will have access to additional market insight and identification of investment opportunities from the Neptune axe data, which is delivered directly from 32 fixed income dealers globally.

“We are delighted to have Lombard Odier join the Neptune buy-side community. Having such a prestigious firm involved with Neptune demonstrates the value we continue to provide to investors and will allow further market insight to Lombard Odier’s traders and advisors,” said Byron Cooper-Fogarty, chief operating officer at Neptune.  

The addition of Lombard Odier follows Lloyds Bank Corporate & Institutional Banking being added to Neptune’s bond dealer community last month.

Elsewhere, Mizuho EMEA joined Neptune as an axe dealer for bonds in June. 

“Lombard Odier has a long-standing commitment to innovation to meet ever-evolving customer needs,” said Stephen Grady, head of global market services at Lombard Odier.

“Access to real-time axe data from Neptune is one more example and allows us to deliver better trading outcomes for our clients around the world.”
