“FMDQ e-Markets”….towards Market Transparency and Efficiency. Desirous of being operationally excellent as driven by the FMDQ “GOLD” (Global Competitiveness, Operational Excellence, Liquidity and Diversity) agenda for the development of the Nigerian markets, FMDQ is pleased to launch the “FMDQ e-Markets” (“e-Markets”); a technology initiative designed to suit the needs of different users (issuers, investors, regulators etc.) in varying capacities.
The all-encompassing e-Markets seeks to provide an avenue for debt capital, money and currency markets participation needs – from, but not limited to, those seeking price discovery through to membership registration; those actively trading, to those informing investment decisions, raising debt capital or keeping abreast with activities in the market. This initiative is well in line with our mission to empower the financial markets to be innovative and credible, in support of the Nigerian economy.
The e-Markets Portal consists of sub-segments which have been created as tools to enhance the efficiency of different activities in our market. These sub-segments include:
- e-Discovery: The online price discovery portal, providing online activity prices in the fixed income and currency markets
- e-Registration: The online tool for membership, issuer, issue and eligible investors registrations (Coming Soon!)
- e-Subscription: The online tool for subscription to issues (Coming Soon!)
- e-MarketData: Complete market information (Coming Soon!)
- e-Broker: Online data reporting tool for Associate Member (Inter-Dealer Brokers and Brokers)
Also being launched, as a sub-segment of the e-Markets is the first version of the “FMDQ e-Discovery” (“e-Discovery”), our price discovery portal. e-Discovery provides online activity information on the FMDQ fixed income and foreign exchange markets. This is in line with our commitment to be value-adding to our Members and stakeholders in general, through the provision of market activity transparency. This valuable tool, e-Discovery, is available to only FMDQ Members at no extra cost.
