Awards and Achievements
We are delighted to have been recognised for the following awards and achievements:
Afiniation FinTech Showcase: Best Disrupter
Australian Corporate Bond Company Co-Founder Ian Martin presented at the Afiniation Melbourne Showcase in April 2016 to an audience of bankers, brokers and venture capitalists. XTBs were identified by the judges as filling a gap in the market by offering retail investors an easy way to buy corporate bond exposure. “The problem is while it is simple to buy shares in individual companies, it is extremely difficult to buy underyling corporate bonds” Ian Martin says. explaining this gap.
“XTBs trade on the stock exchange like an equity, what we do is take $500,00 lots traded in the wholesale market and break them down into $100 units and have a Market Maker making prices on ASX with continual prices.”
