Alongside the development of leading-edge technologies, we have witnessed an explosion in the availability of data. 

The last decade has seen vast amounts of time and money channeled into gathering, generating and cleaning up fixed income-related data, and today all market participants can benefit from significantly enhanced transparency and access to deep pools of knowledge. 

In this report we take a critical look at how this data has already been put to work to solve the real market challenges that affect the trading floor every day; how firms are using AI to unlock the potential in data; and how the majority of firms are engaging with these changes.
