Singapore/Hong Kong, 22 November 2022 – S&P Global Market Intelligence was awarded Data Provider of the Year in the 5th Regulation Asia Awards for Excellence 2022 at an in-person ceremony on 22 November 2022.
S&P Global Market Intelligence was recognised for its provision of diverse datasets and solutions. Its market data solutions enable firms to calculate issuer-level valuations based on curves and proxy pricing covering factors such as rating, industry, term structure and tenors – at both the country level and across 55 subsectors. This helps to satisfy IFRS accounting rules, FRTB, valuation adjustment calculations, and best execution obligations.
Following a merger with IHS Markit that completed in February 2022, S&P Global Market Intelligence is able to cover all major global and emerging markets while offering more than 1,500 datasets across all key industries. In the financial services industry, the data covers all segments – including ESG data, provided via access to registry, auction and distribution platforms designed specifically for environmental markets.
In addition, S&P Global Market Intelligence has rigorous data cleaning processes in place, allows its alternative data to be accessed in multiple formats, and provides additional statistical packages that are accessible via proprietary APIs or through third-party suppliers. This data is used by financial institutions to drive performance analysis, research, idea generation, back testing, portfolio exposure analysis and model development.
“The complimentary acquisition of IHS Markit by S&P Global has built an unmatched data solution in the market,” said one judge on the Regulation Asia awards panel. “Yet the company is continuing to enhance its focus, coverage and models to address clients’ pain points. S&P is constantly challenging its data and models, allowing users to scrutinise its methodology and review the way it sources, uses and validates data. This kind of transparency has become extremely important for market participants today.”
S&P Global Market Intelligence also provides a number of other proprietary products and services – including investment signals, macro indicators, non-traditional datasets for market analysis, reference data, securities finance analytics, holdings data, liquidity indicators, and valuation tools for complex and illiquid products, exotic derivatives, and private equity investments.
