VMS selects IHS Markit for global bonds and analytics


Vertical Management Systems (VMS), a provider of data, financial networking, and account aggregation technology, is to integrate IHS Markit’s daily evaluated pricing and reference data on over 2.5 million bonds into its VMS Data solution, servicing the global wealth management industry.

“Our collaboration with IHS Markit fully rounds out our scope of data coverage, which will enable us to fundamentally transform the delivery of pricing and reference data from a high-cost/low-value ‘commodity’ dominated by large players, to the actionable intelligence that is required in today’s ‘reg-tech’ operating environment,” says Kevin Rafferty, President and CEO of VMS. “VMS and IHS Markit are well-aligned in our dual commitment to providing a high-value solution with world-class service to the wealth management space. Together, we offer lower-cost, superior data in flexible formats designed to improve our clients’ ability to optimize operational workflow and make well-informed decisions.”
“We are pleased to work with VMS to bring our high-quality fixed income data to a broad set of professionals in wealth management,” says Kiet Tran, head of Fixed Income Pricing and Reference Data at IHS Markit. “The range of data we provide helps investment managers gain a holistic view of risk and opportunity in capital markets.”
While VMS has long set the standard for premium mutual fund data, its partnership with IHS Markit, combined with a partnership bringing best-of-breed equity pricing and corporate action data, provides VMS with a comprehensive data solution for the wealth management space.
IHS Markit’s fixed income pricing service provides independent pricing and liquidity data for fixed income instruments to support risk management, price verification, compliance and trading workflows. The firm’s team of over 100 fixed income expert evaluators aggregates robust transaction data to offer a best in class pricing solution covering over 2.5 million corporate and sovereign bonds, municipal bonds, securitised products, bank loans and CDS.
