BondDesk Group LLC and S&P Capital IQ to Develop an Innovative Odd-Lot Fixed Income Pricing Service

Recognizing the need for improved price transparency in the odd-lot fixed income markets, BondDesk Group LLC and S&P Capital IQ announced a new pricing service for U.S. corporate and municipal bonds, Odd-Lot Valuations. The evaluated prices in this new service will be derived using S&P Capital IQ's proprietary methodologies and factor in market data from the BondDesk ATS. Odd-Lot Valuations will include bid- and ask-side odd-lot (<$1 million) evaluated prices, a unique market range around these prices and a flexible suite of tools to deliver these outputs to fixed income marketplace participants including retail brokers, market makers, buy-side institutions, interdealer brokers, data providers and alternative trading systems (ATSs). This innovative service will bring a degree of confidence to the execution of odd-lot fixed income trades, provide compliance departments with a consistent way to help assess trade execution quality, and provide investors with valuations that are more indicative of odd lot transactions. This much anticipated service, now expected to launch in the fourth quarter of 2013, will initially cover U.S. corporate and municipal bonds.
