CDS pricing curves

  • Evaluated CDS Curves
    Get evaluated pricing data when observed data is not available. We imply over 1,600 CDS curves from bond pricing information using a two-step approach. First, we calculate either a bond implied curve directly from issuer’s bond prices or a bond adjusted CDS sector curve for less liquid issuers. Second, we apply a proxy CDS-Bond basis aggregated by region, rating and sector to get the final Evaluated CDS curve.
  • Sector Curves
    Access sector curve data for all IHS Markit covered sectors calculated using a regression approach based on our CDS single name pricing data and calculated for average ratings from Moody’s, Fitch and S&P, ranging from AAA to CCC. Aggregated CDS curves across the full-term structure are broken down into eight regions, seven rating levels and 11 sectors.
