BondDroid AI, 7 Chord’s award-wining real-time pricing engine, processes 100 million + data points per day, including firm and indicative quotes, post-trade levels, as well as a variety of macro and country risk factors.

Moreover, BondDroid delivers an unparalleled level of transparency in its systematic pricing, quantitative methods, and inputs, thereby allowing the end user to better interpret and act on the information.

Clients of PBI can now use BondDroid prices to support a variety of workflows across the entire Order/Trade management cycle, including optimizing and rebalancing their portfolio, managing transaction costs pre- and post-trade, identifying booking mistakes and outliers, measuring risk, and setting limits.
