Bid Wanted In Competition - BWIC

A situation where an institutional investor submits its bond bid list to various securities dealers. In a bid-wanted-in-competition situation, the dealers are allowed to make bids on the listed securities. The dealers with the highest bids are then contacted.

This approach works best on more-liquid securities. For situations where less-liquid bonds are involved, an investor uses a dealer similarly to a broker. An order with a predefined spread range is submitted to a dealer, and it is up to the dealer to fill that order within a limited timespan.
