NEW YORK, April 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Pre-Rec, the fixed income industry’s first search and surveillance platform powered by recommendation technologies, is announcing the addition of securitization industry pioneer, veteran, and thought leader, Saul Sanders to their board of strategic advisors. 

In this role, Sanders will advise on business development and strategy, bringing 40+ years of experience focused on MBS & ABS trading and investing, and as a leading issuer of bonds in these markets.

Pre-Rec is making the bet these technologies will soon become an essential part of the tech infrastructure in the highly competitive yet fragmented fixed income industry, enhancing bond search & selection, portfolio surveillance, bond pricing, and creating new protocols for market participants to connect and transact.

While I like the vision Pre-Rec has established, I’m even more enthusiastic about the unique competitive advantage Pre-Rec’s product provides, helping investors, broker dealers, and issuers to be smarter and more aware of the market.»
