Thomson Reuters, the world’s leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, today announced its appointment by S&P Dow Jones Indices, one of the world’s leading index providers, to provide end-of-day as well as terms and conditions data for the market’s first ever index that tracks debt of the S&P 500 companies.

Thomson Reuters Pricing Service (TRPS), an independent pricing service covering over 2.5 million global fixed income securities, derivatives and bank loans, will work closely with S&P DJI to help them meet their valuation and reporting requirements for the S&P 500 Bond Index.

The S&P 500 Bond Index is priced in real-time throughout the day and directly corresponds to movement in the U.S. bond market. The Index offers previously unavailable intraday transparency to the pricing of debt on America’s most influential companies.

The S&P 500 Bond Index will deliver side-by-side analysis of the performance differential between U.S. equity and bond markets. TRPS will work with S&P DJI to power the Index. TRPS is supported by experienced evaluators who apply consistent pricing methodologies, reflecting up-to-date market conventions and procedures in order to provide transparency into the inputs and techniques used to value illiquid and harder-to-value securities.
“We are delighted that S&P Dow Jones Indices has chosen to use our fixed income end of day pricing in conjunction with our comprehensive and high-quality bond terms and conditions data to act as constituents for their new Bond Index,” said Marion Leslie, managing director, Pricing & Reference Services at Thomson Reuters. “Thomson Reuters is committed to partnering with the market’s leading service providers, ensuring market participants are able to benefit from our award winning content via multiple partners, platforms and applications.”

“We are extremely pleased to be working with Thomson Reuters to provide end-of-day & terms and conditions data for our S&P 500 Bond Index,” said J.R. Rieger, head of Fixed Income for S&P Dow Jones Indices. “Thomson Reuters Pricing & Reference Services has a proven track record of delivering consistently accurate and transparent data which will allow us to offer the most comprehensive and up to date information to investors.”
