Boston, September 1, 2022 – The explosion in electronic trading within the U.S. corporate bond market has put new fuel in the tank for credit ETFs. Work-from-home mandates, extreme bouts of volatility, and central bank intervention in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic have set the stage for the final leg-up in adoption of electronic trading across nearly all corners of fixed income and, in tandem, a massive surge in institutional adoption of FI ETF trading.

This report assesses the current state of and path to further institutional adoption of fixed income ETFs. It is based on participant interviews, public trade data resources, proprietary Aite-Novarica Group estimates, and third-party analysis.
