Penson Adds Canadian Fixed Income Products To US Broker Bond Platform

Penson Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: PNSN), a leading provider of execution, clearing, settlement, custody and technology products and services to the global financial services industry, today announced that correspondents of its U.S. subsidiary, Penson Financial Services, Inc. (PFSI), now have access to Canadian fixed income products through the Penson Bond Connection™ platform.

U.S. correspondents will be able to offer their clients a comprehensive array of Canadian corporate, municipal, provincial and government bonds. Penson’s Canadian subsidiary, Penson Financial Services Canada Inc. (PFSC), already provides bond market insights, settlement information and execution services to PFSC’s Canadian correspondents and customers.

“With economic uncertainty currently facing U.S. investors, Penson is seeing a rise in demand for non-domestic fixed income products,” said Bryce Engel, President of Penson Worldwide, Inc. “Canada, which offers a substantial interest rate differential from the U.S., is an alternative investors are seeking. By expanding the Penson Bond Connection to include Canadian fixed income products, in addition to its existing access to U.S. products, we are making it easier for our correspondents to meet their clients’ needs.”

Penson Bond Connection provides access to one of the largest pools of centralized fixed income liquidity. Users can conduct self-directed searches and price discovery from a universe of 35,000+ competitively priced primary and secondary municipals, corporates, agencies, CMOs, treasuries, strip/zero coupons, certificates of deposit and structured products.

Penson Bond Connection also provides access to in-depth analytics and tools, enabling users to create tailored investment strategies through its customizable and configurable work station. Combining order management tracking of pending and completed orders with historical access to order audit trails, Penson Bond Connection is built to support both evolving trading and business processes.
