280 Advisor Services from 280 CapMarkets
There are increasingly more fintech services to help small players compete with large enterprises, writes Julie Muhn at Finovate. Bond sales and management platform 280 CapMarkets is releasing its latest offering for advisors to do just that.
The new suite of offerings, 280 Advisor Services, is a set of tools and resources to help independent advisors expand their capabilities and compete against larger, more established firms. Eve Cohen, 280 CapMarkets managing director and head of advisor liaison desk, says, “Gaining access to a broad universe of wholesale bonds offerings, having the resources to thoroughly evaluate bonds in the context of real-time market dynamics, and balancing time between managing their clients’ needs and running a practice can be tough. We designed 280 Advisor Services specifically to solve these challenges for independent advisors.”
The complimentary suite is available through the Advisor Liaison Desk of 280 Securities and features:
- customised and branded bond portfolios, tailored to the individual needs of the advisor’s clients;
- bond portfolio reviews to help advisors align clients’ fixed income portfolios with their goals and evolving markets;
- on-demand insights to help advisors make informed choices based on structural and credit characteristics of fixed income securities;
- access to wholesale bond offerings, research, and trade ideas, based on real-time fixed income market dynamics, bond availability and pricing.
Founded in 2016, 280 CapMarkets’ mission is “to level the playing field for independent financial advisors in the fixed income markets”. The company’s flagship service, BondNav, helps investment advisors search and transact bonds transparently on a single, simple platform.
The number 280 in the company’s name refers to the highway that connects the east coast of the US to the west coast. It explains: “Our national highway system, built to connect the free movement of trade and commerce, inspires the technological network 280 CapMarkets has built to improve bond market price transparency and confidence in fixed income investing.”
