Product overview—Xpressfeed

S&P Global Market Intelligence specializes in the creation, curation, maintenance and delivery of accurate and transparent capital markets-related information and datasets, supported by a range of technologies and ancillary services. The firm’s data and technology subject matter experts collaborate with their buy-side and sell-side clients to help them make the most judicious business and investment decisions, confident in the knowledge those decisions are repeatable and defendable by virtue of the data underpinning them.


The solution

A consistent frustration cited by capital markets decision-makers centers not on a lack of data, but a lack of curated and easy-to-consume data that can be integrated into existing platforms and workflows to inform critical business and investment decisions. To that end, Xpressfeed, S&P Global Market Intelligence’s proprietary flagship feed delivery offering, provides users with a single integrated data source in item-level transaction files, including a range of datasets that firms typically use to drive their quantitative research and modeling functions. Xpressfeed combines the breadth and depth of S&P Global Market Intelligence’s content with select third-party and alternative data vendors to deliver data through an integrated solution that helps clients enhance their data lakes, proprietary analytics, financial portals and customer relationship management systems. Data is delivered in zipped packages and posted to a secure location, accessible via File Transfer Protocol or Xpressfeed Web Service, allowing users to receive only the data they require.


Data coverage

  • More than 200 datasets, including Compustat and Capital IQ point-in-time financials, estimates, ownership, transactions, corporate relationship and key developments, featuring call transcripts and other non-financial details.
  • Alternative data, such as machine-readable textual, environmental, supply chain and foot traffic data.
  • Credit ratings from S&P Global Ratings, Fitch and Moody’s. Ratings content is organized into packages defined by issuer sectors and contains issuer- and issue-level details.
