SIX Telekurs adds Moody's Analytics municipal securities pricing

19 May 2009  |  2218 views  |  0 Source: SIX Telekurs

SIX Telekurs announces the availability of municipal securities pricing from Moody's Analytics and reference/descriptive data from Mergent Inc., thereby adding even greater depth and quality to its coverage of US fixed-income markets.

With the addition of evaluated prices and reference data on over 1.2 million municipal securities, SIX Telekurs now covers the universe of US municipal securities. Daily pricing is provided by Moody's Analytics, which delivers independent valuations based on the most up-to-date market information, taking into account the attributes of each specific instrument such as state of issuance, rating/outlook, optionality, and sector. Descriptive and reference data for these bonds is provided from the Mergent Terms and Conditions database under an exclusive licensing agreement through Moody's.

"The combination of Mergent's rich terms and conditions content with Moody's sophisticated, modern model-based evaluated pricing is a powerful addition to our US fixed-income offering," says Barry Raskin, Managing Director of SIX Telekurs USA. "Through this offering, we are able to provide our customers with the depth and breadth of data for munis that we already provide for more than five million securities traded around the world."

Moody's evaluations are objective, and as such can be used by any type of institution for a variety of purposes, ranging from portfolio valuation to risk management and compliance. Given the current state of the credit markets, prices from an unbiased, expert provider can facilitate compliance with internal policies as well as with regulations such as FAS 157.

David Little, Managing Director of Moody's Analytics, says, "SIX Telekurs' ability to deliver the Moody's evaluated prices in a single format along with any other security in the customer's portfolio is a big advantage. Customers can now utilize existing infrastructure to immediately add Moody's as a source of municipal prices - a critical advantage for those who need truly objective valuations but don't have the resources to bring on an additional service."
