Building fixed income portfolios is a painful process for all involved as fragmented data makes it difficult for portfolio managers and advisors to compile meaningful advice for each and every client. Even the best attempts at creating individualised portfolios for clients are often stumped by the limited tools available and yield sub-optimal results.
BondIT was founded in 2012 to tackle this problem. Our team expertise spans across fixed income, data science, and machine learning. The team combines market experience from fixed income experts with technical know-how from researchers and developers who have come together to find solutions for the bond market. Now, using BondIT's sanitised data, powerful machine-learning algorithms and a super intuitive user interface, we deliver the world of fixed income on a silver platter to you, all in a matter of seconds.
