London, 3 November 2016 – The global pricing and valuations data vendor community has experienced consolidation over the last seven years. New entrants and larger players have swallowed up niche vendors to broaden their spectrum of asset-class coverage, infrastructure players have stepped into the fray by picking up data vendors, and incumbent data giants have continued to invest in their offerings. How do financial institutions trying to keep pace with the increasingly complex and nuanced fixed income markets face their day-to-day fixed income valuation challenges, and how do they perceive these valuations data providers?
Based on an online Aite Group survey and Aite Group phone interviews conducted with operations and technology executives engaged in the oversight of evaluated pricing for fixed income instruments at 29 financial institutions across the globe, this research assesses the fixed income valuations data providers and industry perceptions of those vendors’ capabilities. It fully profiles four fixed income valuations data providers: Bloomberg, ICE Data Services, IHS Markit, and Thomson Reuters. This report is the second in a series of two—find the first here.
