SIX Financial Information’s Evaluated Pricing Service (EPS) provides independent valuations based on close attention to observable market inputs as well as high quality reference data. A unique platform enables rapid and efficient price queries as well as access to third party valuations for multiple pricing sources.
EPS’s proprietary methodology has been independently validated by a major global audit firm and helps firms comply with their regulatory and accounting obligations. SIX Financial Information provides complete documentation of its pricing models and the market data inputs and assumptions underlying the valuations. These transparent procedures support your regulatory and operational requirements, helping you rely as little as possible on internal estimates or counterparties.
For portfolio managers challenged with valuing illiquid securities or regulators and end investors demanding multiple, independently sourced valuations, EPS is your solution for consistent and reliable prices for a wide range of financial instruments.
The Evaluated Pricing Service is beneficial to anyone who requires a regularly and consistently updated valuation of their financial instruments from an independent source. It is particularly suitable for use in ‘mark-to-market’ and ‘fair value’ applications.
In addition to regulatory compliance, the service is useful in a large number of other operational functions such as:
- Product control
- Collateral management
- Fund accounting
- Risk management
- Capital and margin calculations
- Client reporting
