The data used in these statistics is aggregated from a network of nearly 20,000 registered bond and money market professionals worldwide. The network links users representing issuers of commercial paper, certificates of deposit, medium term notes, bonds and so on, with dealers and investors (and visa versa) and acts as a fixed income utility that not only matches ISINs (International Securities Identification Number) with LEIs (Legal Entity Identifier) but also keeps users up to date.


By uploading instruments users automatically become part of a targeted organic and dynamic network that keeps them informed about the instruments they hold, trade or have issued. This allows them to target Corporate Actions directly to the registered holders.

The network focuses on data validation from settlement date to maturity date for market participants. Users with large data sets wishing to test if their data is correct, can use these systems to isolate an instrument out of 1000s, that has for example the wrong maturity date in their database.  Data is tested against a golden copy networked database containing over 11 million securities.
