Products and Solutions

  • RED for CDS

    Confirming CDS trades with accurate data is essential for managing market risk and maintaining operational efficiency. Historically, firms have used many operational and legal resources to manually confirm CDS reference data while trying to avoid trade breaks with their counterparties.

  • Asset Backed CDS Reference Data

    ABCDS have a “pay as you go” structure where fixed and floating payments are calculated monthly. Due to the lack of available data and the complexity of payment calculations, market participants often have varying interpretations of settlement amounts. IHS Markit can help you resolve these competing interpretations and get efficient, accurate data collection and calculations when you are facing a tight window for settling monthly ABCDS payments.
