S&P Capital IQ, a leader in multi-asset class and real time data, research and analytics, has announced significant content and functionality enhancements to its Valuation and Data offering on the Global Credit Portal.
Launched in 2012, the Valuations and Data Portal offers independent and transparent valuations, pricing and data across multiple asset classes for global fixed income securities and hard-to-price instruments. The offering also includes access to pre- and post-trade pricing, historical valuations and terms & conditions data. The new content provides portal users with access to as many as 2,000 unique daily government bond quotes across 37 currencies and pre-trade pricing on 30,000+ corporate and emerging market bonds.
"Legislation such as Dodd Frank and Mifid II are driving the need for more pre-trade price quotes and color, combined with post-trade price reporting," said Rui Carvalho, Managing Director of S&P Capital IQ Enterprise Solutions. "This addition builds on our commitment to provide a comprehensive pricing universe that meets our client's pre- and post-trade needs. The Tullett Prebon data provides a complementary data set that supports price defensibility, price transparency, and valuation assessments."
Along with the Tullett Prebon data, users of the portal can now access S&P Capital IQ's Quote data. This integrated content set results from last year's acquisition of CMA and delivers daily pre-trade pricing on over 30,000 unique bonds. The prices result from more than eight million buy-side and sell-side quote contributions aggregated on a weekly basis. These quotes complement S&P Capital IQ's expanding market data universe of pre- and post-trade content, which now includes information on more than 350,000 unique identifiers. Existing contributors to the offering include Xtrakter, FINRA TRACE, and the MSRB. The new data was made available in the recent release of S&P Capital IQ's Valuations & Data Portal, as well as through plug-in and data feed services.
Other portal release features include enhancements to screening and search tools that provide users with the ability to retrieve comparable securities with recent transaction history when a secuecurity being viewed has little, if any recent trade history.
