Significant cost reduction
Providing automated online access, a direct line to liquidity providers and being able to eliminate the time-consuming and expensive mechanics of traditional bond trading, means we can offer a clear and competitive pricing scheme. NLC charges a commission, offering full transparency. This is in contrast to the industry standard where one often finds a ‘one bank one price’ approach.
