Markit has teamed up with Charles River Development to integrate its credit pricing and reference entity data into the Charles River Investment Management System (IMS) for fixed income. Markit’s data will be consistently mapped and readily accessible throughout Charles River IMS for mutual customers. For Charles River’s clients, the deal will offer a “completely integrated credit derivative workflow within their order management system”, which the vendor believes will result in increased accuracy, efficiency and standardization of derivative trading with counterparties. The XML feed will be made available in Version 8 of the IMS system and will initially include data such as Markit REDTM, iTraxx and Dow Jones CDX constituent data, credit curves and reference entity information.
