London-based Lombard Risk Systems is to add market prices from GFI to its online ValuSpread Credit price verification service.
The service will allow users to revalue credit default swap portfolios and verify pricing using complementary independent data sets.
Under the deal, GFI will make part of its data available through Lombard's ValueSpread service twice a month.
Penny Davenport, managing director, valuation services, Lombard Risk, says: "GFI is able to bring to this partnership widespread real market prices direct from brokerage desks."
GFI collects bids and offers as well as traded levels reflecting the actual underlying credit default swap market. This data is made available through its credit portal and data feeds, with a price database of 1700 traded credits and 350,000 price points collected globally.
