“Credit risk is dynamic and rarely neatly packaged. On top of this, an already opaque bond market increasingly saddled with the hurdle of illiquidity challenges even the best pricing models that rely on structured data” Sarah Biller, President of CMX.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
Capital Market Exchange, the Boston-based provider of Fixed Income Analytics, announces it has expanded its universe of covered credits for investment grade bond investors. Capital Market Exchange leverages its systematic aggregation of current market factors and proprietary analytics to build a bottoms-up Sentiment Adjusted Spread for over 10,000 issues globally. Capital Market Exchange’ Sentiment Adjusted Spreads provide investors the first ever input to their decisions that rigorously monitors credit market sentiment to identify mispriced bonds
Increased interest in its work this quarter led Capital Market Exchange to expand coverage to debt sold by Pipeline firms. The Pipelines sub-sector includes Energy-related firms in the business of drilling and transporting oil, gas, and alternative energy sources. Pipeline firms analyzed carry oil and gas to intermediaries as well as end users. In addition, Equipment and Service Providers to the Pipeline firms are also analyzed in this sector. This addition expands the number of industries analyzed from thirteen to fourteen.
“Credit risk is dynamic and rarely neatly packaged. On top of this, an already opaque bond market increasingly saddled with the hurdle of illiquidity challenges even the best pricing models that rely on structured data” Sarah Biller, President Capital Market Exchange explained. “As a result, credit teams are turning to analytics that can quantify inputs beyond financial metrics as well as complement their proprietary processes to make more targeted investment decisions.” Capital Market Exchange has met this challenge, continuously refining its analytic framework to quantify both structured financial ratios and unstructured, more abstract factors that influence an individual company’s credit risk levels like management execution.
