Trepp, Markit Partner for Transparency on Synthetic CMBSs

Share article

Trepp, provider of CMBS and commercial mortgage information, analytics and technology, and Markit, supplier of independent data, portfolio valuations and OTC derivatives trade processing, have forged a partnership they say will bring greater transparency and accuracy to the valuation of synthetic Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities (CMBSs).

Under the agreement, Markit’s valuation input template will be integrated into TreppDerivative, Trepp’s analytics and surveillance product for CMBS derivatives, enabling joint clients to manage their pricing processes for synthetic CMBS contracts more efficiently, the partners say.

Valuations analytics for the Markit CMBX, a synthetic index of US CMBS, have incorporated Trepp’s cashflows since the launch of the index in 2006.

Subscribers to this service will be able to export their contract terms and conditions compiled within the TreppDerivative product to Markit for valuation. This single interface for analytics, cashflows and valuations should streamline the process for the end user significantly and result in accuracy of trade input, the partners add.
