Leading the way in independent evaluations -
Interactive Data's fixed income evaluations for approximately 2.8 million securities reflect the world's dynamic markets and can help reduce the time, cost and effort associated with clients' mission-critical operations.
Backed by decades of experience, Interactive Data is a proven industry leader in evaluated pricing, setting the standard for coverage, quality and reliable delivery. Thousands of financial institutions worldwide, ranging from central banks to large investment banks, subscribe to Interactive Data’s evaluations.
Interactive Data has teams of evaluators operating in the U.K., U.S. and Australia. Evaluators maintain and develop market contacts on both the buy and sell-side. The Company's independent evaluations represent its good faith opinion as to what a buyer in the marketplace would pay for a security (typically in an institutional round lot position) in a current sale. In addition to bid-side evaluations, Interactive Data also offers mid/mean and ask-side evaluations.
Interactive Data is not affiliated with or owned by a securities broker, dealer or underwriter, nor is it actively involved in the business of investment management or securities trading. The Company does not advise clients on whether they should buy, sell or hold securities.
