What is the Real-Time Pricing business at Bloomberg?

Bloomberg’s real-time pricing business is a market leader in the fixed income universe and is supported by a variety of pricing options available on the Bloomberg Terminal as well as distributed directly to clients.

IBVAL Front Office (IBVL) is the newest pricing source built to support real-time trading and the growing adoption of trading automation. IBVAL Front Office uses a machine learning model that ingests trade and quote data sources in near real time to produce high quality pricing and consistent coverage across the liquidity spectrum. This pricing source is distinct from but complementary to Bloomberg’s leading evaluated pricing service, BVAL.
