Apr 28, 2010

Interactive Data Corporation, a provider of financial market data, analytics, and related solutions, has announced that its Fixed Income Analytics business has released BondEdge Version 3.2. This new BondEdge release contains enhancements to help institutional investors assess risk related to prime and sub-prime residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS), including fixed- and adjustable-mortgage pools, collateralized mortgage obligations (CMOs) and asset-backed securities (ABS). Included within BondEdge Version 3.2 are the following enhancements: ►A new multi-factor term structure model (G2++) to compute analytic risk measures and provide interest rate and credit spread simulation analysis on prime and sub-prime RMBS. This arbitrage free model of interest rates includes a volatility surface which is calibrated on a daily basis to the swaptions market. ►The availability of enhanced collateral detail on non-prime RMBS, including historical delinquency, loss, and default data as well as current credit trigger status and subordination levels. ►A security specific BondEdge prepayment model scaling tool for prime RMBS which provides the ability for clients to tune prepayment model assumptions at a bond level. ►A capability to automate the provision of security specific base case prepayment, default, and loss severity assumptions, as applicable, for prime and non-prime RMBS. "This new release extends BondEdge's analytic capabilities to institutional investors having RMBS exposure within their fixed income portfolios", said Keith Webster, managing director, Interactive Data Fixed Income Analytics. "The RMBS-related enhancements delivered with this latest release of BondEdge are a reflection of feedback provided by clients, across all market segments that we serve, to provide more granular security detail and greater modeling flexibility for this complex asset class." "We appreciate the opportunity to work closely with Interactive Data to provide our perspective for the ongoing development of mortgage-backed security analytics," said Thomas H. Atteberry, CFA, Partner First Pacific Advisors. "BondEdge provides tools to analyze RMBS and other fixed income asset classes that can assist in our assessment of absolute and relative portfolio risk."
