London - IHS Markit, the provider of critical information, analytics and solutions, has announced that its pricing data for bonds, credit default swaps (CDS) and structured products are available on FactSet, a provider of integrated financial information, analytical applications and industry-leading service.

FactSet clients now have access to data on more than two million fixed income securities priced by IHS Markit, including corporate bonds, sovereign bonds, agency bonds, CDS, European ABS and securitized products in the US spanning agency pass through, non-agency RMBS, consumer ABS, CLOs and CDOs.

Data on the Markit CDX and Markit iTraxx CDS indexes will follow in the second quarter of this year. CDS pricing from IHS Markit will become the primary CDS dataset on FactSet by the end of the year.

Adam Kansler, Executive Vice President and head of Financial Markets at IHS Markit, said: "We're excited to be a premium data provider for FactSet customers, furthering the use of our industry-leading datasets among a large, diverse group of financial institutions. There has never been greater need for independent, high quality pricing data on fixed income markets."

IHS Markit and FactSet have a long-standing relationship and the Markit iBoxx indexes, Markit PMI and Markit Securities Finance datasets are widely available via FactSet.
