FAQ – Municipal Bonds

Who is MBIS?

A group of eleven firms, including ten that specialize in municipal inter-dealer brokerage, have assembled to create a consortium for the purpose of aggregating the market data generated by businesses of these entities.

Why was MBIS created?

Municipal Bond Information Services, LLC was formed in direct response to the concerns raised in the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Report on the Municipal Securities Market of July 2012[i]. Built from a consortium of eleven firms, the new business venture delivers products to enhance pre-trade price transparency as well and post trade operational practices.

What Issues does MBIS’ data address?

These products and services address structural deficiencies that are attributable, in part, to limited price transparency in the municipal bond markets. This is achieved by providing data related to bonds which did not trade but still had market data from being put out of the bid or being offered.
