Transform your complexity into simplicity
Rates trading is more complex than ever. Banks are under intense pressure as margins are shrinking, market volatility is increasing, and new regulations and reporting requirements are demanding greater transparency.
Whether you’re a large or small rates business, ION’s solution for rates trading can transform your complexity into simplicity.
With ION FI Rates, you can connect to all your markets from one system, see all your liquidity across assets and markets in one screen, and easily assess different liquidity providers to ensure you choose the right one every time.
Everything you need for rates trading in one system
When you’re connecting to multiple markets using a mixture of different screens, and those markets are fast-moving and volatile, understanding where to trade and pricing new instruments manually can cost you valuable time.

You can execute advanced spreading strategies and duration trades, and you can hedge your exposure automatically.
You can also digitize your sales-to-trader workflow, giving your sales and trading desks instant insight into your clients’ trading activity.
What’s more, we can offer co-location next to the market, offsetting your infrastructure costs while also giving you improved performance and the best possible security.
