Today, we’re announcing the biggest update to Discovery to date. Fixed Income is now available for screening.


Today, we’re announcing the biggest update to Discovery to date. Fixed Income is now available for screening.


We are excited to announce that users on Nitrogen Select and Nitrogen Elite can now search for fixed income products using four new filters inside of Discovery.

Breaking Down The Filters

In order to find the right fixed income investments for your clients, you need the right filters. We’ve made it easy to find exactly what you are looking for with the four new filters.

  • Bond Sector – This filter allows you to choose between four main sectors including government, corporate, municipal, and asset backed bonds.
  • Average Credit Quality – Filtering by the credit quality will narrow your results based on the Standard & Poor’s and Fitch Ratings credit ratings (ex. AAA, AA, A, BBB, etc.)
  • Maturity – Narrow down your results based on how long it takes for the investment to return the original principal back to the holder.
  • Duration – Narrow down your results based on their sensitivity to interest rate changes.

Armed with these new filters, Discovery continues to grow into an advisor favorite. Just look at what others have been saying the past few months.


“I love all of this!”
– Andy, advisor in Ohio


“I am looking to move off [my outdated
systems] because Discovery is awesome.”
– Jay, Advisor in Texas
