NEW YORK, FEBRUARY 16, 2011 – Moody’s Analytics announced today that it will partner with DelphX, a new global ABS data and trading utility, to make Moody’s comprehensive structured finance deal data and analytics available to DelphX subscribers. Moody’s Analytics will also establish a link to connect its users to the DelphX network from Structured Finance Workstation (SFW), Moody’s cash flow and valuation platform for structured finance.
“Our comprehensive deal data and cash flow analytics help bring greater transparency to the structured finance market, and we are pleased that they will be available to subscribers of the new DelphX platform,” said Jacob Grotta, Managing Director, Moody’s Analytics.
Moody’s SFW users will be able to enter, negotiate and execute orders on the DelphX network in real time. The DelphX network provides a neutral, transparent and global facility for public disclosure of asset-level data, documentation and waterfall cash flow projections for new Structured Finance securities, and timely updates for outstanding securities. DelphX subscribers can independently assess the potential value of assets, portfolios and securities and view their historical market values, informed by the interaction of DelphX members’ trades.
DelphX users will gain real-time access to continuously updated data from Moody’s SFW, a robust and flexible platform for performing cash flow analytics on all types of structured transactions. Based around a powerful analytic engine, SFW includes a waterfall editor, a comprehensive deal library with asset-level data for more than 60,000 securities, extensive reporting tools and analytical tools for scenario, cash flow modeling and risk analysis.
“Moody’s SFW includes an impressive array of investor-focused tools to analyze and interpret detailed and evolving information, and provides an ideal resource for DelphX users to analyze, quantify and interpret the large volume of dynamic ABS information now available,” said Larry Fondren, Founder and CEO of DelphX. “Moody’s Analytics provides an optimal mix of information and insight to DelphX members as they seek to execute every transaction at the assured best price.”
