SIX Telekurs has added two new data feeds to its US fixed income market coverage from Moody’s Analytics and Mergent. The vendor is now receiving daily municipal securities pricing data from Moody’s and reference and descriptive data on these bonds from Mergent.

“The combination of Mergent’s rich terms and conditions content with Moody’s sophisticated, modern model-based evaluated pricing is a powerful addition to our US fixed income offering,” claims Barry Raskin, managing director of SIX Telekurs USA.

The service now covers approximately 1.2 million US municipal securities and is aimed at helping firms to comply with accounting regulations such as FAS 157, says the vendor. The Moody’s data takes into account the attributes of each specific instrument such as state of issuance, rating or outlook, optionality and sector. The Mergent data is sourced from its Terms and Conditions database under an exclusive licensing agreement through Moody’s.
