IOSCO published the report offering recommendations to improve regulatory reporting and public transparency in the secondary corporate bond markets. The report offers seven recommendations to improve the information availability to both regulators, through reporting, and to the public, through transparency requirements.
This report is part of the ongoing work of IOSCO to improve the functioning of global corporate bond markets. It recommends that regulatory authorities should:
- Ensure that they have access to sufficient information to perform their regulatory functions effectively
- Have clearer regulatory reporting and transparency frameworks to facilitate better cross-border understanding of corporate bond markets
- Consider steps to enhance pre-trade transparency in corporate bond markets and implement regimes that require post-trade transparency
This report updates the 2004 report of IOSCO on transparency of corporate bond markets. Before the publication of this report, IOSCO had examined the liquidity of secondary bond markets and published its initial findings in March 2017. IOSCO is also examining how liquidity in corporate bond markets might be affected under stressed conditions.
