Ipreo acquires certificates collection service from Markit

Related Topics

Ipreo, a provider of market intelligence and productivity solutions to investment banks and corporations, has acquired Markit’s certificates collection service.

As a result of this acquisition, Ipreo is launching a new offering called iCompliance.

It consists of an online library of US compliance-related certificates, including QIB, Finra 5130, and Regulation S Certificates. The library covers both equity- and debt-related certificates for both primary issuance and secondary trading.

The iCompliance library will be integrated into Ipreo’s sell-side solutions, including the equity and fixed-income bookbuild applications, as well as BD Advanced and BD Vision – prospecting and CRM applications that house Ipreo’s Bigdough institutional database.

iCompliance is also available as a standalone product that provides access to the certificate library through a secure interface. Clients may also choose to take the certificate data directly through a data feed.

“Clients are increasingly concerned with compliance requirements,” says Bill Sherman (pictured), executive vice president and managing director of global data strategy and analytics at Ipreo. “Taking into account the strength of our institutional data and our commitment to supporting all aspects of the new issue workflow, integrating the certificate database is a logical extension of what we do.”
