Independent expertise in fixed income

Who we are

City & Continental Ltd is an established institutional fixed income broker. Based in Cheapside in the heart of the City of London, we service institutions across both primary and secondary markets.

Originally founded in 1999 by traders from Salomon Brothers and Bank of America, City & Continental has built up a reputation as a specialist in illiquid and distressed debt, as well as the conventional bond markets. Our highly experienced dealers service institutional clients in a range of debt instruments – including retail-eligible bonds.


From price discovery, through to the sourcing of high yielding distressed debt, City & Continental’s team of experienced dealers provide financial institutions with expertise and breadth of vision in the often opaque bond and loan markets:

  • Identification of value & comparative value
  • Sourcing/sale of illiquid secondary market bonds
  • Asset swaps and repackaging
  • Restructuring of distressed securities
  • Secondary market loans and syndicated loans
