NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IHS Markit (Nasdaq: INFO), a world leader in critical information, analytics and solutions, today announced that its joint liquidity risk management solution with MSCI has been named the 2018 Most Innovative Market Data Project by Inside Market Data, the authoritative news source for professionals purchasing and managing capital markets data.
IHS Markit and MSCI recently accepted the award during an evening ceremony in New York. At the ceremony, IHS Markit was also named Best Enterprise Data Management (EDM) Vendor by Inside Market Data’s sister publication, Inside Reference Data. This is the fourth time the EDM solution from IHS Markit has been awarded by Inside Reference Data.
“By collaborating on a solution that can help firms comply with SEC Rule 22e-4, while providing broader coverage beyond the scope of the rule, IHS Markit and MSCI fulfilled the spirit of the Most Innovative Market Data Project,” said Max Bowie, editor of Inside Market Data. “The judges said it was ‘hard to beat’ this ‘innovative solution’ which enables firms to measure different scenarios that can impact the liquidity and risk in their portfolios.”
Launched in 2017, the solution delivers best-of-breed liquidity risk management capabilities based on fixed income market data from IHS Markit and model liquidity surfaces from MSCI. The solution covers a broad range of liquidity risk calculations across equities, derivatives and all fixed income instruments.
“Mutual funds and asset managers have expressed a great deal of excitement about the combined value of IHS Markit liquidity data and MSCI risk models,” said Dan Huscher, managing director, fixed income product management at IHS Markit. “We are thrilled that Inside Market Data also recognizes the highly innovative nature of our solution, and how it can help firms manage liquidity risk.”
“Data and model challenges make liquidity risk management a complex subject,” said Carlo Acerbi, managing director, risk management research at MSCI. “We’re proud to be recognized for the innovative solution that MSCI and IHS Markit have brought forward together in this space.”
IHS Markit has produced liquidity metrics for fixed income products since 2010, and today, the firm delivers consolidated liquidity scores and dozens of underlying liquidity metrics, along with pricing for more than 2.5 million fixed income products each day. MSCI introduced its flagship multi-asset liquidity risk measurement framework, LiquidityMetrics, in 2013.
