We’ve spent some time refreshing Katana’s layout and improving the accessibility of some powerful filters on the Discover page. This ensures users can find relevant ideas even faster!
ESG is becoming a major topic in the field of investment. In that light, we have added an ESG filter to different ideas to switch from conventional to ESG bonds. We have also increased our bond coverage even further by adding High Yield bonds (USD and EUR denominated).
We've added additional filtering options to allow you to focus on curve trades. With a single click you can now choose to only see curve trades from Katana.
In addition to that we've also added a filter to only display trade ideas that shorten in maturity.
We’ve added the possibility to search for a bond using CUSIP, enhanced our suite of filters to include z-score, z-spread diff, reversion and similarity and further improved Katana's trade idea algorithm.
We’ve listened to feedback and analysed how our users interact with the Katana platform. From this we identified some improvements to how users achieve the task of swapping a bond. These include introducing an indication of bond liquidity and the ability to pre-apply filters for the opposite side when searching for a specific bond.
Today we are releasing a powerful set of filters to filter through the bonds and also the ability to access all different bond universes Katana Labs offers.
In particular, you can now have powerful filters to search by ISIN(s) and issuers, decide whether you want to include or exclude them and also whether you want them on the buy or sell side explicitly. This will enable you to tailor and customize your search to your exact needs.
Today’s release allows users to search through thousands of identified relevant ideas and improves the search and filtering functionalities, to help users identify the opportunities to best match their mandate.
