The changing regulatory and accounting environment, along with the intense focus on transparency, has increased demand for high quality independent data for use within price discovery, valuations and risk management processes. Given the vast number of bond issues in the market, sourcing pricing information can prove difficult.
Markit Pricing Data for bonds uses price inputs from a variety of sources that are either aggregated to calculate composite levels
or fed into a dynamic model to produce a price validated against a number of parameters. The service also includes full transparency
on the depth of price sources used, a liquidity score reflecting the frequency and breadth of pricing and comprehensive analytics.
