Lombard Risk Systems has launched ValuSpread Credit Data, a new Web-based investor tool for benchmarking credit curves.
The Web-based service provides product controllers, risk and portfolio managers, loan officers and research analysts with credit prices and recovery rates which can be used to build and benchmark credit curves alongside those of the biggest market participants, says the company.
Data is available for over 1000 named liquid and semi-liquid credits, on a current and historic basis.
Penny Davenport, managing director of valuation services, says: "The data is collated via Lombard Risk’s well established ValuSpread Credit service and is made available to clients on a consensus basis. This anonymous data provision from the key market makers ensures timely, quality, unbiased data with better price transparency than might be obtained from a single bank."
ValuSpread Credit Data has been built for seamless integration with other applications, notably Lombard Risk’s Firmament Credit Trading system.
