Product summary

All the data for Markit Index Management is sourced directly from the index providers and exchanges, and then checked and validated ahead of market open.

As part of the Markit Index Management service, we offer clients an integrated data solution that provides a forecast of index changes taking place in the near future. The dataset includes, but is not limited to, changes to the constituents’ number of shares, free float, additions and deletions.

The overall index management solution eliminates risk and reduces the cost associated with changes in index composition. It is delivered via an XML feed or can be accessed through our Markit Enterprise Data Management (EDM) platform. Our EDM software provides a referenced data model for quick client deployment.
