BusinessWire BusinessWireDecember 5, 202248 min

MarketAxess Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: MKTX), the operator of a leading electronic trading platform for fixed-income securities, and the provider of market data and post-trade services for the global fixed-income markets, today announced monthly trading volume and preliminary variable transaction fees per million (“FPM”) for November 2022.1

Chris Concannon, President and COO of MarketAxess commented:

“November was another very strong month, as we continue to build momentum going into 2023. We generated record total credit ADV, with record ADV in Eurobonds and municipal bonds. We also delivered another strong month of market share gains across most of our product areas, driven in part by the powerful benefits of Open Trading, our differentiated liquidity pool. 

Open Trading estimated price improvement4 was approximately $83 million in November, which equates to approximately $923 per million saved for our clients. Year-to-date estimated price improvement4 is now approximately $866 million, 65% above the prior year.

The strength of our performance reflects the enhanced foundation for growth we have established over the last several years by broadening and enhancing our global product portfolio, and we believe we are very well-positioned going into 2023.”
