Interactive Data Corporation, a provider of financial market data, analytics and related solutions, today announced that its Pricing and Reference Data business has signed an agreement with the Bond Pricing Agency Malaysia Sdn Bhd (BPA Malaysia), a leading national bond pricing agency, to make available international fixed-income evaluated pricing to the Malaysian market.

Based in Kuala Lumpur, BPA Malaysia is the only registered bond pricing agency in the Malaysian market, with a wide range of clients including fund and asset managers. Meor Amri Meor Ayob, chief executive officer, BPA Malaysia, said: “We have seen an increasing need from the Malaysian market for independent evaluated pricing, especially for hard-to-value international securities, as domestic firms seek to manage their risk exposure. Through the agreement with Interactive Data, we can now provide our clients with both domestic and international evaluated prices.”

“Interactive Data has experienced teams of professionals dedicated to providing evaluated pricing, ensuring that their processes incorporate a broad range of credit information, perceived market movements and sector news,” added Magnus Cattan, business development director, Asia, Interactive Data. “We are very pleased to work with BPA Malaysia to help provide our international evaluated pricing to their Malaysian clients.”

With decades of experience, Interactive Data offers daily evaluated pricing for approximately 2.8 million fixed-income and international equity issues, covering a broad range of instruments that include global asset-backed securities (ABS), mortgage-backed securities (MBS) and collateralised mortgage obligations (CMOs). Independent valuations for a broad range of alternative investments are also available. Over 5,000 financial institutions worldwide, ranging from central banks to large investment banks, subscribe to Interactive Data’s evaluated prices.

BPA Malaysia is Malaysia’s first and only bond pricing agency accredited by the Securities Commission of Malaysia.
