SIX FinanciaI Information launches new Evaluated Pricing Service

As of today, SIX Financial Information clients can benefit from transparent and reliable valuations via the new Evaluated Pricing Service.

SIX Financial Information has released the new Evaluated Pricing Service (EPS) after a year of infrastructure development, review and testing. The comprehensive, transparent and independently validated EPS arms portfolio managers with consistent pricing information to fulfill regulatory and accountingobligations.

“The release of our new EPS is a milestone in the development of SIX Financial Information’s Evaluated Pricing strategy,” said Bruno Burlon, Global Head of Evaluated Pricing for SIX Financial Information. “Now we are extremely well positioned to fully support clients and achieve further success in the business.”

The launch features significant improvements and enhancements to EPS to increase the defensibility, consistency and coverage of illiquid and hard to price instruments. Highlights include:

  • Addition of new currencies, bringing the total to 26 currencies now covered, including many emerging markets
  • Integration of broader asset classes – hybrid securities and essential OTC derivative contracts
  • Complete technical documentation and disclosure of inputs and assumptions
  • Creation of an evaluations team based in Frankfurt to value European financial instruments and support European clients

“We consulted widely with clients, regulators and auditors before developing our new Evaluated Pricing Service,” said Ian Blance, Head of Business Development for Evaluated Pricing at SIX Financial Information. “We discovered that in addition to independence, consistency and reliability of EPS, clients were concerned with transparency of models, inputs and assumptions and that there had been an independent external validation of the process.

Above all, Blance states, “Evaluated pricing needs to be entirely defensible for clients. Our new service will greatly assist in meeting client reporting and compliance obligations for illiquid and hard to price instruments.”
