Markit launches global ETF platform

Thursday, January 23, 2014
Opalesque Industry Update - Markit, a leading, global financial information services company, today announced that it has integrated its suite of ETF products into a new web application that delivers sophisticated capabilities required for navigating the increasingly complex and global ETF universe.

Mark Schaedel, managing director and global head of equity & index data services at Markit, said: “Until now, ETF investors looking for global exposure have had blind spots due to a lack of cost effective exposure to previously inaccessible asset classes. The integration of our analytics into the new ETF platform helps customers navigate this fragmented market that spans over 5,000 global ETFs, issued by more than 200 providers and which trade across 60 exchanges using a single view with a powerful analytics toolset layered on top”.

Customers can use the platform to gain greater transparency across the global ETF market. It combines the complete referential dataset spanning 5,100 ETFs, full daily portfolio holdings data, announced and forecasted dividends and over 1,300 analytical daily and historical calculations addressing the performance, liquidity, risk and benchmark tracking metrics from the launch date of each ETF.

The integrated suite enables customers to screen the global ETF market place and perform detailed comparative analysis at the constituent level. Customisable views offer deep levels of granularity to help buyside investors assess metrics such as performance, tracking, risk and liquidity. Brokers on the sellside can use the platform to provide their clients with informed investment insights, while providing ETF issuers with insight into activity in the wider ETF market.
