Interactive Data Holdings Corporation Key Developments
Interactive Data Launches Liquidity Indicators Service
Sep 29 15
Interactive Data announced the launch of its Liquidity Indicators Service. The innovative service leverages the same award-winning, fixed-income evaluated pricing and reference data content that supports pricing and trading functions at buy-side and sell-side firms, to provide a series of security- and portfolio-level Liquidity Indicators. Concern about market participants' ability to manage liquidity risk is being stoked by a combination of factors, including: a multi-year decline in dealer inventories; a sharp increase in the supply of outstanding debt instruments, with no comparable increase in trading volume; and anticipation that future interest rate increases could trigger a flight from fixed income assets. Regulatory responses include, most recently, the Security and Exchange Commission's (SEC) proposed rules for liquidity risk management programs for mutual funds, which, if adopted as proposed, would require fund companies to make significant changes to enhance or modify their risk management operations. The Liquidity Indicators are designed to support firms' liquidity risk management needs during all economic cycles, even in stressed markets. They can be used to analyze a security's liquidity compared to other securities in various groupings including issuer, sector, asset class, or against bonds with similar risk characteristics such as yield or duration. The Indicators include estimates of the Projected Trade Volume Capacity of a fixed income security, which can be used in conjunction with firms' actual position sizes to estimate the potential number of days to liquidate a position under various stressed assumptions.
Interactive Data Launches Best Execution Service for Fixed Income Transactions
Aug 31 15
Interactive Data announced the launch of its patent-pending Best Execution (Best Ex) service for the fixed income markets. The service provides a trade-by-trade measure of execution quality relative to comparable transactions in the market. Sporadic trading activity for all but the most liquid bonds in the most liquid asset classes has made it difficult for market participants to assemble the right combination of comparable trades to help them make meaningful comparisons. At the same time, changes in market structure and heightened scrutiny by regulators on best execution have added to the burden of proof on firms. Interactive Data has developed tools that leverage its continuous fixed income evaluated prices as the basis for the measurement of best execution. The tools can be used in a variety of ways by traders, portfolio managers and compliance officers to more closely monitor trading activities across a growing number of venues and protocols. The service can be used to shed light on a range of pre- and post-trade activities and help improve the overall effectiveness of the fixed income trading process at a firm.
