The high-yield team was using the S&P Global Market Intelligence (“Market Intelligence”) Leveraged Commentary & Data (LCD) desktop solution that provided extensive news and research on the leveraged finance markets. Team members wanted to complement those desktop capabilities with access to constituent-level data for the S&P/LSTA U.S. Leveraged Loan Index. This would eliminate the time-consuming task of manually pulling information, thus enabling more robust assessments and benchmarking.
In particular, the team wanted to:
- Receive details on the index via a data feed for integration into internal applications.
- Perform deep dives at the constituent level to assess the impact of sectors and ratings buckets on returns.
- Evaluate spreads and average bids.
- Measure portfolio performance against a widely referenced benchmark.
