New service bolsters liquidity and diversifies investment opportunities

Calgary - Today, ATB Capital Markets announced the launch of their Canadian-focused fixed income trading desk. The new service underpins the firm’s commitment to growth and adaptability, keeping clients and businesses top of mind. 

In the early phases of our business, the fixed income trading desk will focus on sectors that are fundamental to our client base. This includes Government of Canada, Provincials, Canada Mortgage Bonds and other related high quality liquid assets. 

“In this ever-evolving economic landscape, our organisation is focused on growth to meet the changing needs of our clients and support the businesses we support," said Darren Eurich, CEO of ATB Capital Markets. "Our fixed income trading desk allows ATB Capital Markets to connect with a broader network of institutional investors, strengthening our ability to provide liquidity across major government bond markets, which in turn, bolsters support for issuers.”

“The fixed income trading desk will serve as a valuable tool for our clients, allowing them greater access to diversified investment options and expert advice,” says Greg Greer, Head of Fixed Income, Currencies and Commodities.
