Why choose our evaluated pricing service?
We provide thousands of financial institutions around the world with independent, transparent, and accurate evaluated pricing covering over 2.6 million fixed income securities and derivatives. This includes Hard-to-Value assets in core and emerging markets, spanning core sectors and industries.
The securities we price are not originated, issued, or traded by us. With no vested interest, we maintain our independence to perform our daily evaluation process.
Going behind the valuation
A key component of our valuation services is to show you what's behind the price, including pricing recipes, corresponding market color, and other relevant data to provide the transparency you need to meet your risk, reporting, and compliance needs.
Our pricing recipes, pricing score, and wealth of reference data are available for you to perform bespoke analyses. The score is a measurement of pricing robustness and offers transparency designed to help you defend the evaluated price and meet regulatory and disclosure reporting requirements with confidence.
Valuations are available both intraday and at standard market snapshot times.

Pressures Mount for a "fair value" pricing on illiquid, complex securities
From investor protection initiatives, such as Rule 2-a5 and Europe’s revised Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II), to more stringent capital requirements for banks, including the Fundamental Review of the Trading Book guidelines, regulators are zeroing in on “fair value” pricing.
