Backed by Warburg Pincus, a leading global private equity firm, Benchmark Solutions is focused on addressing fundamental shortcomings in price transparency and independence in the OTC fixed income and derivatives markets.
Targeted at front office professionals such as traders, portfolio and risk managers at hedge funds, asset management companies, and regional dealers, Benchmark’s flagship offering, the BMark(SM) Real-Time solution, provides continuous real-time pricing data for fixed income and derivatives products, starting with corporate bonds and credit default swaps, with ongoing expansion slated across other OTC asset classes.
Using its patent-pending Market Calibrated Framework(SM) technology, the BMark Real-Time solution analyzes over 12 million market inputs to price 550 CDS curves across six distinct tenors, as well as 7,000 corresponding US corporate bonds. This proprietary technology generates 118 million market-derived prices each trading day with updates every 10 seconds. Designed to integrate with and enhance clients’ daily workflows, the real-time data is deliverable via the web or data feed and includes a comprehensive real-time overview of credit market activity.
