Fitch Solutions is pleased to announce that Hessegim Software Limited, a leading developer of fixed-income software applications, has integrated Fitch's entire credit rating universe of up to 6,000 US issuers and debt issues into its Prafis fixed income desktop solution - a market data and analytics tool for global bond investors.
The ratings - which span sovereign, public finance, corporates and financial institutions - are delivered via a daily end of day feed and are displayed on the relevant pages of Prafis for a particular issuer or debt issue.
"The inclusion of Fitch's credit rating data will allow Prafis users to benefit from an independent, long-term credit rating view which they can overlay on top of our proprietary models and calculators." says Arik Sorotzkin, CEO at Hessegim Software.
"Today's announcement reflects our position as a leading vendor of credit risk and research products. It will also enable us to extend market access to our credit market data," said Julian Acquari, Global Head of Sales, Fitch Solutions.
