New York-based Mergent Inc., a subsidiary of Xinhua Finance, has released BondViewer, an on-demand web-based system for accessing the company’s database of U.S. taxable and municipal bonds, retail notes, U.S. agency issues and Treasury notes. Features include previous-day evaluated pricing for each bond provided by Mergent’s independent end-of-day evaluation service, and performance tracking. Terms and conditions data includes: company description, offer amount, industry code, unique identifier, historical pricing, current/historical ratings, coupon details, bond covenants, and corporate actions on significant events at the issuer level. Mergent was created in 1998 when Moody’s Investors Service spun off its Financial Information Services division. Since being acquired in 2004 by Xinhua Finance, a leading Chinese financial services and media company, Mergent has acquired Ford Equity Research, an independent research provider, and Historical Securities Database, a provider of global corporate and financial information.
