International ratings agency Fitch Ratings has launched FitchCDx.com, a Web site designed specifically for credit derivative market participants.
FitchCDx.com will consolidate all of Fitch Ratings' analysis and research on credit derivatives.
Robert Grossman, chief credit officer, Fitch Ratings, says credit derivatives are one of the fastest growing segments of the fixed income markets: "This research platform gives users unique access to a combination of market information and fundamental analysis."
The platform will include Fitch Rating's weekly credit default swap prices, automated reference entity rating news, credit derivative market commentary and CDS analytic data. The system will be expanded to include access to Fitch Ratings' CDO performance analytics in Q1 2004.
