The service provides information about rumoured issuance through to official mandates, first pricing, reception, secondary trading, rating changes, relative value/cash switch ideas and credit default swap basis reports. It also offers trading ideas, hedging strategies, analysis on the sentiments and dynamics of both the credit and derivatives markets, and reports on market activity.
MMS claims the service is the first complete package for the credit and derivatives market and is touting it as a 'one-stop shop' for credit professionals working in trading and sales, origination and syndication, structured credit, research, hedge funds and asset/liability management.
Frank Claus, product manager for CDI, told RiskNews sister publication, Inside Market Data, that MMS opted to provide a cash credit and credit derivatives service because the market is relatively opaque and the value of commentary and analysis is high.
