Prior to the global launch, Markit had offered the valuation service to 20 of its clients, beginning last year. “We were looking for independent valuations of our funds and a quick time to market was essential,” said Stephanie Whitford, head of derivatives operations at Schroders, a London-based asset management firm that uses the new service.
