Fitch Solutions Launches Custom Data Service for Credit Markets

Subscribe to our newsletter

Managing data from multiple sources is proving to be troublesome for most firms and even more so in a stressed economy, according to Fitch Solutions, a division of the Fitch Group. In response, Fitch Solutions has launched an integrated data service (IDS) to meet growing user demand for a single, customisable feed platform covering data from across the Fitch Group including credit ratings, credit default swaps (CDS) pricing, market-based risk signals and fundamental financial data.

“Integrating continuously updating data from a variety of sources, each with their own formats and identifiers creates significant overhead for financial companies,” says Jon DiGiambattista of Fitch Solutions. “Market participant needs for flexible, customisable data services only increase in volatile markets as internal and external demands for information rapidly evolve.”

The new feed will enable users to access information on ratings, fundamental financials, CDS pricing and implied ratings and market-based probabilities of default. IDS streamlines the delivery of Fitch’s content into a single data feed which can be customised according to user preferences, and is in a standard format which can easily be integrated with legacy IT applications. “The ability to provide a data service designed around specific client needs underscores Fitch Solutions’ position as a leading market data vendor,” DiGiambattista added.

Users can select daily, intraday, monthly or quarterly delivery, whilst data fields use customisable standard common identifiers to enable the integration of a wide range of data.

Fitch Solutions offers IDS data sets separately, all together or as part of a customised package which also includes features such as portfolio mapping, data validation and bespoke file formats.
