Markit wins HFMWeek’s best information and data vendor award

Markit, a leading, global financial information services company, today announced that it has been named best information and data vendor at the HFMWeek US Hedge Fund Services awards. HFMWeek is the leading resource for global hedge fund news.

Markit collected the award for its Portfolio Valuations – Private Equity service, a new independent valuation service for investors in private, unlisted companies. The service is designed to meet customer fund reporting requirements.

Kevin O’Connor, director of portfolio valuations at Markit, said: “Our new service aims to take analyst subjectivity out of private equity valuations, replacing it with observable inputs and extensive peer comparisons to deliver objective, market-driven prices. We are delighted to see our private equity valuations service recognised with this award.”

Since its launch in July, Markit has expanded the service to include illiquid debt valuations, and income attribution capabilities.

Markit Portfolio Valuations – Private Equity is available as a fully-hosted solution, automating the data collection and calculation workload. Markit also provides valuations and risk measurement on portfolios of vanilla and exotic derivatives across multiple asset classes, including interest rates, equities, credit, FX and commodities, as well as structured notes and fixed income cash products.
