U.S. government bond ADV was up 1.0% YoY to $117.4 billion (bn), and European government bond ADV was up 6.5% YoY (up 21.4% YoY in EUR terms) to $31.4bn.
- Client engagement in U.S. government bonds across institutional and wholesale markets remained high, while higher interest rates drove strong growth in the retail market. European government bond trading continued to remain resilient amidst heightened rates market volatility.
Mortgage ADV was down 10.7% YoY to $169.2bn.
- Declining issuance and higher yields continued to weigh on overall market activity.
Swaps/swaptions ≥ 1-year ADV was up 22.2% YoY to $184.9bn, and total rates derivatives ADV was up 30.5% YoY to $313.8bn.
- Swaps/swaptions ≥ 1-year volumes were driven by robust client interest in the request-for-market (RFM) protocol, increased engagement from international clients and strong trading activity in emerging markets swaps. Ongoing market focus on evolving central bank policy continued to buoy overall market activity.
Fully electronic U.S. Credit ADV was up 16.2% YoY to $3.6bn and European credit ADV was down 29.3% YoY (down 19.4% YoY in EUR terms) to $1.4bn.

- An increase of 21.0% YoY in global institutional client activity, driven by further adoption of RFQ and sustained market volatility, was more than offset by lower activity in the wholesale market and a strong dollar.
Repurchase Agreement ADV was up 15.1% YoY to $397.3bn.
