Direct Investor Ownership of Fractional Bonds Expanding
Expanding Access to Corporate Bonds and More
Previously, the fixed-income markets were dominated by large market participants—meaning large trade sizes, higher minimum investments, pricing opacity, and dealer-to-dealer relationships.
Now, retail investors can more easily add fixed-income into their portfolios through fractional bonds.
