Standard & Poor’s has entered a new agreement with Markit Group to distribute Markit’s benchmark credit default swap (CDS) prices via Standard & Poor’s CDS Xpress datafeed. The vendor already carries Markit’s Reference Entity Database (RED) in its CDS Xpress and CDS Accelerator products, which are tailored to the synthetic collateralized debt obligation (CDO) market. The CDS Accelerator product will now provide composite daily closing prices for five-year CDS. Combined with CDS Xpress, additional daily updates of data such as credit ratings, industry codes, country and CLIP entity codes on underlying reference credits are made available.
