As a market leader in data services, we provide evaluations across commodities, equities, FX and fixed income markets. Real-time market data feeds across our different products power applications in front, middle and back offices for thousands of financial institutions worldwide, ranging from central banks to large investment banks.
Our independent evaluations represent our good faith opinion as to what a holder would receive in an orderly transaction for a security (typically in an institutional round lot position) under current market conditions. We have teams of evaluators operating in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Hong Kong and Australia. Evaluators seek to maintain and develop multiple market contacts on both the buy- and sell-side. In addition to bid-side evaluations, we also offer mid/mean and ask-side evaluations.
A variety of forces in the marketplace are changing how risk is managed and investments are made from sell-side to buy-side: the growing adoption of electronic trading, increasing regulatory demands and the continued focus on price transparency, just to name a few. To assist market participants in addressing these changes, we provide continuous, independent evaluated pricing to front, middle and back offices, extending the reach of fixed income end-of-day evaluations into intraday applications.
Our Fair Value Information Services are designed to provide you with various information that you can use to help estimate a price for an equity security, equity index futures contract, or equity option that would likely prevail in a liquid market in view of market information available at the time of each security’s evaluation. This service offers mutual funds a convenient and flexible tool to assist them in meeting their fair value information requirements and to reassure investors that their investment fund company is taking steps to safeguard shareholder interests.
Your access to independent, third party pricing is critical to your investment accounting consideration, particularly given regulatory trends and the growing adoption of general evaluations best practices. With our Leveraged Loan Evaluation Service, you can benefit from an internationally renowned source for independent, high quality pricing and evaluations.
