Product Summary

Our fair value calculation snap times include the close of major markets worldwide, as well as custom snap times tailored to client requirements. Markit’s cutting-edge methodology uses the correlation between individual security prices and more than 30 market, regional, sector and entity-specific factors to calculate the best estimate of a stock’s price outside of active trading hours.

Daily model calibration optimises the accuracy of our fair value estimation. Markit has back-tested its approach for effectiveness, and results of these back-tests and detailed methodology documents are available for review.
