RIAs are mad for fixed-income ETFs but a start-up's backers bet $10 million it can get them to pay $10,000 (per seat!) to go back in-house

Other attempts to virtually combine bond inventories were lackluster but YieldX says it's mining a rich new vein of data that bond ETF makers -- Vanguard, BlackRock, PIMCO etc. -- lay bare.

Steve Gross: You can do a much much better job than just putting a core ETF into your [clients'] portfolio and paying 30- or 40-basis-points for that ... it's a little bit lazy.

The fixed income markets represent a significant hurdle for technology to overcome owing to the noted dearth of liquidity, large number of different issues outstanding, buy-and-hold nature of investors and the Federal Reserve overall. The excess yield that is perceived to be available will likely be more than washed away through real transaction frictions. Nevertheless I applaud the effort. Can you point me to who's handing out $10MM on back of the envelope ideas? Thanks!
