"We have been aggressively expanding our capabilities and to help credit teams reduce uncertainty triggered by market volatility," said Sarah Biller, President Capital Market Exchange.

Capital Market Exchange, the bond investor's leading source of market-based pricing intelligence, announces the release of new features to its web-enabled solution. The company launched the first version of its product, an integrated analytics platform to transform market sentiment collected from a vetted network of institutional investors into actionable decision points, in late 2011. The newly released enhancement reflects the inputs of early adopters and expands the solution to provide users more dynamic, differentiated information to their investment decisions.

Capital Market Exchange's analytics now include interactive performance charting to track the accuracy of market sentiment models over time. Sheamus McGovern, head of Technology and Strategy, noted, "Assessing the factors widely thought to drive current spreads provides users an anchor point to assess the emergence of new credit risks and provides them an advantage in anticipating downside risk that conventional models don't offer."

Similarly, Chief Investment Officers, Portfolio Managers, and Credit Research teams using Capital Market Exchange's enhanced solution can more completely assess the impact of macro events on current bond spreads. Most recently, Capital Market Exchange modeled the impact of GIIPS sovereign debt exposure in tandem with other factors thought to be influencing financial institution's spreads. Credit teams can also combine key inputs to their decisions - such as real-time duration, spread data and issue information - with forward-looking market views to form a new opinion on an issuer's credit value.

"We have been aggressively expanding our capabilities and to help credit teams reduce uncertainty triggered by market volatility," said Sarah Biller, President Capital Market Exchange. "This relentless focus on addressing the needs of asset management teams investing in the credit markets has enabled us to collect and react to the feedback of the some of the industry's most influential thinkers."
