Standard & Poor’s (S&P) has made its Cusip Master File database available through GoldenSource. Under the arrangement users can access Cusip and other S&P data through GoldenSource in a format that will let them manage risk exposure more effectively by identifying issues and issuers from a variety of sources.
The Cusip Master File database, a service of the Cusip Service Bureau, includes Cusip identifiers for corporate, municipal and government issues with intra-day, daily or weekly updates. Instruments covered include corporate equity – including common, preferreds, warrants, ADRs, funds and UITs – corporate debt – including debentures, notes, convertibles, CDs, medium-term notes – and Municipal and U.S. Government debt offerings.
GoldenSource already provides connections to several data feeds from S&P, including its ISIDPlus Master Service – a global identifier cross-reference service and a joint venture with Telekurs Financial – and Security to Entity CrossWalk, an alliance between S&P, D&B and Telekurs Financial. RatingsXpress, a customizable digital feed of real-time S&P credit ratings and research information on global issuers, structured finance and U.S. public finance markets is also included.
