Financial data provider ValueLink Information Services has signed an agreement with Deutsche Börse to take a direct feed of all closing iBoxx indices and constituent prices.
iboxx is an index provider which was set up by ABN Amro, Barclays Capital, BNP Paribas, Deutsche Bank, Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein, Morgan Stanley, UBS Warburg and Deutsche Börse.
The iBoxx Euro and Sterling bonds and indices are based on the best market prices available from multiple contributors to provide transparent pricing of all the underlying instruments.
iBoxx prices will be available within the validated, client-specific pricing service and also as iBoxx specific data.
Stephen Choate, chief executive, ValueLink, says: "The introduction of iBoxx data to our service extends our range of fixed income data and increases the availability of iBoxx data within the market."
ValueLink adds the iBoxx indices are a new generation of real-time bond indices based on an objective and transparent set of rules.
