Today, we’re excited to share the official launch of Loan Trading on Octaura. The full press release can be viewed here.

Progress has finally come to the loan market, which has lagged other credit markets in the entry to electronification. The benefits of trading efficiency, transparency and liquidity are essential for market performance and growth. With a lot of focused, hard work—and in just one year’s time— Octaura is bringing those benefits to the Leveraged Loan market.

With today’s launch, Octaura has now grown to five dealers, following the addition of Jefferies – who join Bank of America, Citi and Morgan Stanley.

In the last week of beta sessions, our platform has seen over $1B on both the bid and offer side, spanning 1,030 loan facilities which constitutes almost all of the TLB tradable universe.

Additionally, 90 loan investors are either fully onboarded or pending completion.
