Credit Suisse First Boston (CSFB) has launched a new market data service that provides financial professionals with one-stop access to securities pricing data and analytics.
The service, called CSFB DNA, uses the bank's global securities data platform to deliver integrated trader-sourced price information with analytical tools via the Internet and third party distributors.
CSFB DNA provides pricing data on more than 25,000 fixed-income and convertible securities, in over 35 different asset classes in six currencies. The price and yield information is accompanied by over 30 derived analytical values for each security and range of sectors.
Users will also be able to access the Sovereign Data+ (SD+) Website which provides detailed country specific information including historic data, economic forecasts and analytics. The site features coverage of approximately 100 major economies and includes forecasts with links to news, financial market data - including fixed income, equity, foreign exchange - and country-specific background information. In addition, SD+ provides analytic tools that interpret sovereign risk and allow comparative information to be stored in one location.
William Battey, president, CSFB DNA, says trader priced data and broad based quantitative analytics are essential in assisting clients to interpret risk factors in the marketplace: "CSFB DNA offers a uniquely valuable combination of economic market data, securities prices and diagnostic tools that provides efficient and reliable assistance to a wide range of market and financial professionals."
Future versions of the service will feature index based data and analytics and company specific information.
Distributors include Fame, MoneylineTelerate, QA Data Solutions, Quantitative Analytics and Reuters.
