NEW YORK, Nov. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Ipreo, a leading global provider of workflow solutions and market intelligence to financial services and corporate professionals, release growth statistics on usage of Investor Access, which demonstrate strong adoption by both banks and investors.
Activity continues to grow at a rapid rate, with more than 800 published deals on the system, of which more than 400 have been open for orders. During the year, the number of banks publishing deals jumped from 11 in January to 27 in October, with more banks expected to be added to the list in November.
Over the last two months, approximately 80% of all Euro issuance and 65% of all Sterling issuance was published by the banks over the platform.
