Dear GlobalCapital Readers,
Welcome to GC BondMarker, where we invite you to score bonds on five criteria according to the quality of their execution and performance.

Hundreds of bonds worth billions of dollars and euros are launched each week across the world, but apart from bare distribution statistics, anecdotal performance data and GlobalCapital's world-famous bond comments, the market lacks a focal point through which a transaction can be deemed a success or not.  Not anymore.

GC BondMarker gives you the ability to score, anonymously, a deal according to its success across five key criteria: pricing, choice of structure and/or maturity, quality of the investor book, timing and performance. Market participants will have five market days to vote on the five qualities of a deal after it is launched, ranking each criteria between one and 10.

Bookrunners will then be able to see what their peers think about the deals they have lead managed , while borrowers will find out what the market really thinks about their transactions - and how their deals compare against others. 
The results will be available to view on a week after a deal has been launched. GlobalCapital will also offer a results service, to be sent out at the end of every week, showing the top deals of the week overall and by sub-sector as well as the banks that have led the most successful deals. 

At the moment BondMarker is in its beta version. The latest deals are now available to be scored by clicking below:
