Interactive Data Adds 12pm GMT Evaluations for North and Latin American Equities

Share article

As hinted at during its recent webinar on valuations, Interactive Data’s Pricing and Reference Data business has now expanded the capabilities of its Fair Value Information Service by introducing new London 12pm (GMT/BST) evaluations for North American and Latin American equity securities. Shant Harootunian, managing director of evaluations for the vendor, explains that the move is aimed at helping financial institutions to meet fair value requirements during these volatile times.

The London noon evaluation engine was developed to help clients meet the fair value requirements of European domiciled funds that use the London noon valuation point. “Interactive Data recently observed that approximately 2,000 funds use London noon as the cut off point in their NAV calculations,” explains Harootunian.
