Mark-it Partners, provider of a daily pricing service for global credit derivatives, cash credit instruments, and syndicated loans, has rebranded to become Markit. The rebranding will be adopted by all products and follows the integration of several acquisitions over the course of the year. LoanX becomes Markit Loans; Totem becomes Markit Valuations; DaDD becomes Markit Dividends; and TIMS becomes Markit Index Management.
Meanwhile, the company is expanding into the U.S. and has opened an office in New York, which will be run by Kevin Gould. Gould was previously executive vice president of sales and development for Markit’s European business. In New York, he will oversee a team of eight, responsible for offering local client support.
