Overbond expands real-time platform access

Overbond Ltd., an end-to-end capital markets platform for primary bond origination and fixed income deal execution, has expanded real-time access to the Overbond Platform to all U.S. corporate issuers and institutional investors by extending key functionality via desktop and mobile applications for all operating systems.

Overbond has also expanded its presence in the US with the opening of a New York office in Grand Central Tech.

Enhanced market data and analytics for all devices

Overbond’s proprietary machine learning and powerful predictive analytics capabilities are now delivering real-time credit investment opportunities to investors via mobile and desktop applications and smart notification systems on both iOS and Android devices.

The new mobile application distributes COBI (Corporate Bond Intelligence) Opportunities and has already delivered more than 3,000 credit investment opportunities. It will extend the service’s reach to 5,000 new U.S. based market participants to bring a new supply of bond issuance, creating much needed new liquidity in the corporate debt markets.

Overbond has also enriched its big data analytics suite for primary bond market quotations through new platform integrations with Egan-Jones Rating Company (EJR), Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s and credit ratings data, complementing existing integrations with Thomson Reuters and DBRS.
