Thoughts on Bond-Market Liquidity (IIAC Blog)


Ian Russell

From the President

On September 30, I spoke at the Bloomberg LIVE Canadian Fixed Income Conference in New York City. Ari Altstedter, Reporter with Bloomberg News, did a terrific job moderating a panel on bond market liquidity on which I participated.

On the same day, I also sat down with Michael McKee and Kathleen Hays on Bloomberg Radio to talk about the deterioration in bond market trading conditions in Canada; the differences between the Canadian and U.S. markets; the contributing factors to decreased liquidity; what regulators can do to ameliorate the liquidity crunch; and the implications for fixed income investors.
