The Money Market Association of the Philippines, or MART for short, has come a long way since its humble beginnings. To date, the association has a total of 64 member institutions consisting of banks and non-bank financial institutions that actively trade fixed income securities in the market. The administrative structure is securely in place with a network of 12 highly-specialized working committees. The depth of its established communication links has provided avenues for discussion of relevant and vital issues affecting the industry.
The association as it is today did not evolve without its own growing pains. Major upheavals and significant events distinguished these years, and through it all, the MART has emerged as the responsive and dynamic body it is today, steadfast in the pursuit of its goals, and gearing up for the challenges of the future.
