Bloomberg to Launch Singapore Corporate Bond Pricing Benchmark

June 4, 2012

SINGAPORE — Bloomberg LP announced today that it will provide
an end-of-day fixing for Singapore-dollar corporate bonds,
supporting the Monetary Authority of Singapore’s (MAS)
initiatives to boost liquidity in capital markets.

This data will serve as a key reference benchmark for mark-to-
market and portfolio valuations. The fixing, calculated by using
end-of-day pricing contributions from major primary dealers in
Singapore, will be available live on the Bloomberg Professional
service at FIQ and SGDC as of June 4.

“This initiative gives our clients all the tools and data they
need to make informed investment decisions and valuations in the
Singapore-dollar corporate bond market,” said Ben Macdonald,
Bloomberg’s Global Head of Fixed Income.

Grant Coombe, Bloomberg’s Head of Asia Sales, based in Singapore,
said, “Bloomberg’s new platform will improve efficiencies in the
corporate bond market and will provide reliable pricing for the
industry and asset managers alike.”
