Fitch Solutions has entered into an agreement with Markit to distribute Fitch Research content via Markit Hub, a web-based service that provides financial professionals with easy access to a wide range of third-party content from a single site.
Markit will provide Fitch's research covering all global sectors, including Fitch Wire commentary in real-time on the Markit Hub platform. Markit Hub users can access Fitch content along with other third-party content saving them time and resources.
'Broadening the availability of our research content via Markit Hub will not only embed Fitch Research in the daily workflow of market participants who currently use these platforms, but it will also expose Fitch Solutions to a broader financial services audience,' said Ian Rothery, global head of Third-party Distribution and Strategic Partnerships at Fitch Solutions.
'We are very pleased to welcome Fitch Solutions to the Markit Hub community and to expand Hub content into the ratings arena. This significant addition will provide buy-side users worldwide with access to leading credit research,' said Heidi Johnson, managing director and head of Markit Hub.
