Markit, a global financial information services company, has agreed to distribute Euroclear Bank’s eurobond reference data, giving market participants direct access to information on more than 200,000 eurobonds. Euroclear Bank is a provider of cross-border settlement and related services for bond, equity, derivative and fund transactions.
Markit will be responsible for marketing and distributing Euroclear Bank’s eurobond data, allowing customers to make better informed decisions on an intra-day basis. Markit will also optimise the data by cross referencing them against its own entity and industry sector identifiers and a wide range of additional identifiers. This will enable Markit’s customers to process the data efficiently and support their Eurobond trading activity.
Armins Rusis, managing director and co-head of information at Markit, said: “By combining Euroclear Bank’s extensive data set with our expertise in aggregating, validating and distributing complex information, we will be able to deliver comprehensive and timely solutions for the eurobond market. This underpins our goal to bring greater transparency and efficiency to the global financial markets.”
