FT Interactive Data adds CreditGrades to BondEdge

The Massachusetts-based company, a unit of UK media conglomerate Pearson, said RiskMetrics’ CreditGrades product will help managers more effectively evaluate credit risk at the individual security level. CreditGrades uses an equity-based firm-value model (a Merton model) for assessing credit quality. It produces indicative credit spreads for North American and European public companies.

“The synthesis of RiskMetrics’ theoretical model output with actual market trends provided by BondEdge affords clients a more balanced view of their credit risk profile,” said Teri Geske, senior vice-president of product development for BondEdge, which is licensing CreditGrades from RiskMetrics.
