“Clients benefit from our aggregation of price quotes from multiple electronic venues and institutional dealers,” he added. “We do not widen spreads nor are there hidden fees or markups. While some companies charge a large, hidden markup, we charge extremely low, transparent commissions. IBKR clients may provide liquidity to bond markets and improve pricing by entering their own pending orders into the book.”
In addition to ultra-low, transparent pricing, the company offers a huge selection of fixed income products, including a full universe of US government securities, over 38,000 global corporate bonds, 851,000 million municipal securities, 33,000 CDs, 1,900 non-US Sovereign bonds, plus fixed income futures and fixed income options.
