TheRFQ platform facilitates online execution and settlement as part of trading of corporate bonds, commercial papers, certificates of deposit, G-Secs, T-bills, State Development Loans, Municipal Bonds and securitised debt.

The platform claims to offer better features and flexibility compared to other existing over-the-counter platforms, along with a “lot more transparency and better efficiency”.

Traders can also carry out their registration process online using the platform. The online trading platform will also provide role-based user management and counterparty risk management features. It also enables auto-flow of executed trades in corporate bonds for traders in order to help with settlement.

The web-based platform will be integrated withthe BSE’s current reporting and settlement platform NDS-RST for corporate debt securities.
