Liquidity in secondary markets remains an issue to be addressed by exchange operators globally. In a proactive move, NYSE Euronext has established a dedicated working group, encompassing all stakeholders of the bond markets industry (issuers, banks, brokers asset managers etc), to investigate the specifications of a trading platform where price formation on the secondary market would occur for corporate bonds.
In addition, NYSE Euronext is working with renowned Liquidity Providers to favor liquidity on the securities listed on its trading venues. Currently over 100 trading Members are active on the bond segment, many of which are also active liquidity providers on the debt instrument trading groups.

In order to promote the listing of corporate bonds on the Brussels market, NYSE Euronext set up a ‘bond taskforce’ in 2009. This taskforce was composed of representatives of the major banks, brokers, and law firms, and was strongly supported the FSMA by the Belgian regulator.
Based on the analysis and the recommendations of the taskforce, a number of changes have been implemented, the processes have been streamlined, several fees have been reduced and an information brochure explaining in detail the listing process for corporate bonds on the Brussels’ exchange has been produced.
Hereafter you can download this information brochure, as well as a flyer (both documents FR/NL) outlining the changes that have been brought.
