ION, a global provider of trading, analytics, treasury, and risk management solutions for capital markets, commodities, and treasury management, has been accepted to the International Capital Market Association (ICMA) as an Associate Member. 

ICMA has over 600 institutional members in more than 60 jurisdictions, providing high-quality research, regulation, support, and education across international capital and securities markets. At a crucial inflection point for issuers, lead managers, dealers, investors, and asset managers operating internationally, ICMA represents critical stakeholders and seeks to develop better smart market solutions for the industry. 

The Association promotes effective and functional cross-border market behaviour, regularly issuing internationally recognized guidance on the issuance, trading, and settlement of bonds; and best practice standards for repo and collateral trading. ICMA plays a central role in discussions to develop best practices in today’s capital markets through consistent engagement with key regulatory bodies and sector institutions. 

As an Associate Member, ION will: 

  • Work with ICMA and other members to support investors, traders, and institutions as they transition to automated workflows. 
  • Contribute to recommendations, guidance, and solutions, particularly in secured funding and fixed income. 
  • Participate in events to shape industry-wide innovation. 
  • Help shape market-standard documentation. 
  • Utilize strong relationships with certified regulatory and training bodies, becoming part of a much broader community of leading market professionals. 

Ed Tyndale Biscoe, Product Owner for ION Markets Secured Funding, said: “As our industry reckons with important market challenges, we are delighted to be joining ICMA, a leading influence for international capital markets. Starting the year as an Associate Member is an exciting prospect amid the ongoing standardization of trade lifecycle processing; and digitalization of repo and securities lending. This is a key opportunity to help shape a critical forum for industry-problem solving and lies at the heart of our work within ION Markets.”

Recently, IBS Intelligence reported that ION, a global provider of trading, analytics and risk management solutions for capital markets, commodities and treasury management, announced that leading agribusiness Louis Dreyfus Company (LDC) had chosen ION Derivatives Global Trading Platform (GTP) to manage and grow its derivatives execution and hedging operations.
