The S&P U.S. Commercial Paper Index is a new, broad based index designed to serve the investment community’s need for a benchmark representing the US commercial paper market, says the vendor. As part of the deal, Interactive Data now delivers daily, independent evaluations for more than 3,000 commercial paper issues to S&P for its use in valuing the index.

Rieger says the index is aimed at providing a broad benchmark for measuring the performance of and providing additional transparency into this market.
