Gabriele Frediani, BondCliQ.

Gabriele Frediani has been named head of European expansion strategy and execution at BondCliQ, the central bond price facility driven by dealer prices.

Frediani is renowned in the markets as a voluble and well-connected head of sales, with several decades of experience in fixed income markets.

After a decade of working in business development for derivatives market operator Eurex, he joined bond trading platform MTS in 2010 as head of markets.

In 2016 he was named chief business development officer at Elixium, the electronic trading platform for collateral and secured deposits. Having left the firm he began advising Katana, the trade-idea generator for bonds, in 2020. This is a role he appears to be continuing alongside his work for BondCliQ.

The real-time consolidated quote and data system has seen significant expansion in the US over the past two years, with BondCliQ reporting it has 45 participating US dealers, and has now set its sights on European markets.

Delivering consolidated pricing to buy-side traders based on sell-side quotes, BondCliQ’s model is to support the dealers by analysing their quotes against their peer group to help improve price making.
