MARK-IT PARTNERS CONFIRMS ITS INTERNATIONAL PRESENCE BY ADDING 12 NEW GLOBAL CONTRIBUTORS

LONDON -- Mark-it Partners Ltd., the world’s first integrated daily pricing service for global credit derivative, cash and loan instruments, is strengthening and expanding its international position as the data provider of choice through the addition of twelve global institutions as new credit data contributors.

Hypovereinsbank, Banco Santander, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Commerzbank, KBC Bank, National Australia Bank, Nomura, Rabobank, Royal Bank of Canada, Standard Bank, Wachovia and Westpac have all signed as data providers. These new contracts further strengthen Mark-it’s proposition across Europe and Asia as well as accelerate the company’s growing presence in North America. This brings the number of contributing institutions to 40 and the total customer base for Mark-it Partners to well over 100.

Francisco Galiana, Head of Credit Markets at Santander's European Treasury said "Mark-it Partners’ superior data and established industry reputation led us to sign with them a multi-year deal, which we expect to enhance our ability to trade and manage credit risk across the whole firm."

Kevin Gould, Executive Vice President of Mark-it Partners said, "Attracting such high calibre contributors demonstrates the vital role Mark-it Partners’ plays within the industry. Moreover, the inclusion of institutions that are major players in their local markets helps strengthen the global coverage of the dataset, making it of even greater value to all users."
