IHS Markit announces Japanese Dashboard 2.0, a platform for the Japanese fixed income retention market

07 September 2021

IHS Markit is pleased to announce Japanese Dashboard 2.0, a platform for the Japanese fixed income retention market which offers a centralized, auditable platform for the execution of deal communication.

The retention market in Japan requires meticulous communication across different stages of the deal in a secure manner. Historically this was done over email, with little auditability and control. Japanese Dashboard 2.0 offers a collaborative environment for the underwriters that enables a leading bank to direct a full transaction, disseminate information as appropriate, and get feedback and approval from the other underwriters on the information provided. Each bank has the ability to review previous deals, providing an audit trail of each transaction that they participated on. There is also an export feature, allowing deal information to be passed on internally or to the issuer.

With previous execution methods, the pace at which the information could be shared and acknowledged was slow. With Japanese Dashboard 2.0, underwriters will get in app notifications and email alerts for new issues they have been invited to and deals awaiting their approval. They will also get their own centralized hub to manage deals they are running and see deals they are currently participating in. This single location for all transactions ensures no information is missed and that deals progress on time.

Multiple large Japanese banks supported the launch of the new platform, working closely with IHS Markit to deliver a system tailored specifically for the Japanese retention market. Following the successful completion of the first deal run on the platform, the banks involved were impressed with the speed of execution and ease of use.

Japanese Dashboard 2.0 is part of the IHS Markit Fixed Income suite of products that includes IssueNet, the sell side network that enables the vast majority of global issuance using the pot deal format. With IssueNet and Japanese Dashboard 2.0, the Japanese market now has systems which bring efficiencies on both retention and pot transactions.
