Financial institutions will be able to conduct valuations across a number of asset classes and instrument types following the launch of Thomson Reuters Valuation Risk Service. The product has been developed as a result of pressure from the Financial Services Authority, regulators and industry insiders for fair and transparent valuations of financial instruments from unbiased third parties. According to Thomson Reuters conventional pricing methods are seen as limited, being subject to shifts in volatility, correlations, and liquidity constraints http://digbig.com/4xmms. The Valuation Risk Service brings together Thomson Reuters global pricing and security reference data service and the Kondor and Reuters 3000 Xtra pricing libraries. Based on an “open model”, the bank’s or investment firm’s proprietary models can be used simultaneously with these external libraries: the vendor believes that the breadth and depth of the combined data sources and models will ensure data integrity and consistency. A wide range of asset classes and instruments are covered including, corporate bonds, bank loans, residential mortgage-backed securities, asset-backed securities, structured products and derivatives.
