Why the Australian Bond market?

The Australian Bond Exchange (ABE) is Australia’s pre-eminent marketplace for investing in fixed income securities. We offer better income, with less fees using the reliable and stable returns of corporate bonds for clients dissatisfied with highly volatile or lower-yielding investments.

Founded by a team of four who all have more than 20 years experience in the financial and IT industry, Australian Bond Exchange seeks to provide Australian Investors with access to the Australian Bond Market. At ABE, investing in corporate bonds means you get the best of both worlds: higher returns and lower risk values so you can worry less about where you hard-earned wealth is going.  

We’ve worked not just in Australia but also Singapore, London, New York, China, Switzerland. So we know how well Australia is placed in the global economy and can use that wealth of knowledge to help keep your investments growing with stability. From trading in private firms and big banks to working with the regulators to design the banking rules. We’ve worked closely with the infrastructure that supports all the biggest financial exchanges. This means we have in-depth knowledge and experience of all aspects of the financial system.

This experience means that we’re the goto company in Australia that is licensed to provide specific financial advice, deal directly in bonds, and provide custodial services to both retail and wholesale customers.

At the Australian Bond Exchange we have a few simple values that help us stay on our true mission:

Financial Access and Relations

We have spent years building the relationships with the banks and financial institutions to allow direct trading lines. Because of this we can buy bonds at a much greater rate and at far better pricing than almost anybody else. Which really means that we’re able to find the bargains and offer them direct to you.

It also means we are much more likely to have much more understanding of how bonds work with the wider market, than any stock broker or financial adviser. This is not disparaging your adviser because most brokers and advisers are generalists looking at all securities across the whole market. But just like your GP who will refer you to a specialist – we’re the specialists, and very happy to work directly with your adviser.

Bond Pricing

We can tell you the exact calculation of any bond that we offer. We can tell you why it is priced the way it is and why it fits or does not fit with the rest of your portfolio. We can explain about the bond, the company, the industry, the market or how it relates to any other bond. And then we show you clearly and with full transparency the cost of the transaction, with no ongoing custodial, management, exit or trailing fees. That alone will keep thousands of dollars in your pocket.

We also have a very rigorous Product Approval Process that allows only products that meet exacting requirements to be traded on our platform. This means you can invest with confidence.

And if you join us you become part of the family. And if for whatever reason you have to sell a bond, you call us up and we will make sure that you will get the best pricing.
