This year, the winner of best market surveillance provider is S&P Global Market Intelligence, thanks to its RatingsDirect platform.
RatingsDirect has a module called Monitor, available since 2017, which is a data visualization portfolio monitoring tool that provides risk/return insights and helps track and analyze market movements for publicly traded companies rated by S&P Global Ratings. With Monitor, users can view credit ratings and market data on corporate issuers.
Recently, S&P updated the Capital IQ platform, so users can now find Ratings’ local language credit research in Spanish, Portuguese and Chinese, with a redesigned interface for research updates.
Users also have access to performance metrics for European Structured Finance deals, including interest payment date and initial publication date (the date S&P Global Ratings posted the report to RatingsDirect on the Capital IQ platform).
These dates provide the transparency required for deals eligible for funding under the European Central Bank asset purchase program.
Additionally, a new Environmental, Social and Governance article tag on the Capital IQ platform is now available so users can quickly search and set alerts on new research on this topic from S&P Global Ratings.
