S&P Capital IQ and SNL announce that, effective immediately, the new combined entity is rebranding as S&P Global Market Intelligence.
The division's new name is a strategic move forward as part of the integration of the two previously separate businesses, S&P Capital IQ and SNL Financial. Both fall under parent company McGraw Hill Financial (MHFI). The businesses originally combined following the successful completion of the SNL Financial acquisition by MHFI on September 1, 2015. MHFI also recently announced its intention to rebrand at the corporate level as S&P Global, subject to shareholder vote in April of this year.
"Today, our organization has a new, unifying name -- S&P Global Market Intelligence -- which reflects the strong position that we have in the marketplace as a leading provider of global financial data and analytics," commented Mike Chinn, President of S&P Global Market Intelligence. "The announcement is a galvanizing moment for our division and I'm excited about the growth and opportunities that lay ahead."
Drawing on the history and strong performance of S&P Capital IQ and SNL, S&P Global Market Intelligence is positioned to capitalize on the fast-growing, global market for insightful and timely information. We provide our clients with the broad data, powerful analytics, and in-depth sector intelligence they need to make informed investment decisions.
