Markit Portfolio Valuations CCP connectivity platform simplifies the process for clearing OTC trades by reducing the cost and complexity attributed to in-house solutions. With each CCP having its own method, timing and format of delivery, the CCP connectivity process is becoming increasingly costly and difficult to manage, particularly for institutions clearing through multiple CCPs.
Markit Portfolio Valuations is connected to all CCPs actively clearing OTC trades, and will continue to connect to new CCPs as
they make their services available. Customers can obtain cleared prices from all of their CCPs in a consistent and timely manner
using a single Markit interface, significantly reducing operational burden.
Additionally, customers may choose to use Markit’s valuation as the primary pricing source for cleared trades where the CCP
price is not available in time to strike a NAV. Customers can independently validate the cleared price using Markit’s valuation or
leverage our valuations as a second source of CCP cleared prices. Markit Portfolio Valuations can also provide trade-level risk
sensitivities on cleared prices
Using Markit Portfolio Valuations, customers can receive valuations and risk measurement for exchange-traded, OTC
cleared and bilateral derivatives, private equity and cash instruments from a single platform, alongside their internal
and counterparty marks.
