Interactive Data Adds Fixed Income to Fair Value Services

Subscribe to our newsletter

Interactive Data’s release of fair value information services for international fixed income securities initially covers sovereign and corporate bonds in the EMEA region, but the company plans to extend coverage to fixed income securities in Asia and Australia, and also has plans to build out the real-time fair value information service it introduced in March 2011.

The fixed income securities fair value option continues the evolution of Interactive Data’s fair value information services that started when the company introduced its first service for global equity securities over 10 years ago. The model of the new service is similar to existing Interactive Data models that are based on statistical relationships between market-based factors and a variety of pricing inputs, and reflect where financial instruments would be likely to trade if they were still active in a liquid market. The services are distributed as data feeds or can be accessed on an ad hoc basis at a dedicated Interactive Data website.

Rob Haddad, director of evaluation services at Interactive Data, explains: “The driving force behind our innovation has been constant – supporting clients’ fair value pricing objectives with proven methodologies, extensive coverage and superior client service. The expansion to international fixed income securities follows this trend, enabling us to offer evaluations that reflect current market conditions at the time of net asset value determinations. This means all shareholders get a fair price when buying or selling shares.”

The introduction of the fair value service for fixed income securities follows service enhancements across the board including an increase to four valuation points in London and New York throughout the day – 7.00, 10.00, 11.30 and 16.00 ET – and fair value services for options on indices and futures.

Haddad adds: “As the concept of fair value has grown, we have been at the forefront of innovation in developing new services such as the fixed income securities service. Over the past 12 months, there has been a lot of interest, particularly in the US, in our real-time fair value information service for international equities and exchange traded funds, so we will develop more services of this type.”
