About US

STRUCTURED CREDIT INVESTOR. WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU?
In a constantly changing market for securitisation you need the very best independent journalism and market data available to help you navigate around the complex issues at hand. Issues such as regulations, new issuers and deal flow, secondary markets, trading opportunities, and emerging new asset classes require expert journalism to interpret what's at stake for you and your company. A comprehensive market data portal is also a must to complement your research. 

SCI, founded in 2006 and still independently owned by its executive management, offers all this and more. On your behalf we aim to help you better understand securitisation and its constituent asset classes - CLOs, ABS, CDOs, CMBS, RMBS and ILS; and emerging asset classes such as Capital Relief Trades and Marketplace Lending ABS, to name a few.

SCI's news team tackles the most relevant stories affecting investors, issuers and support services through its in-house editorial team.


MARKET DATA
SCI's data package includes: SCI PriceABS - a daily secondary market colour and price service covering the US & European markets (for more see next paragraph.) We also offer comprehensive coverage of deals in the pre-issuance pipeline; a primary issuance database of deals and their structures; details of events impacting loans securitised in CMBS; information on CLO manager changes; and industry job moves. Each data feed is available to subscribers in both online and downloadable formats.


SECONDARY MARKET PRICING: SCI PriceABS
SCI PriceABS is a daily secondary market price service using direct market observations of pre- and post-auction price talk and covers/traded prices for all securitised products across the US & Europe: ABS, CDO, CLO, CMBS and RMBS. Trade colour and prices are fed to clients online, in excel and via API in a standard, uniform format to integrate into your desktop systems.
SCI PriceABS data is also available via several third party evaluation and cashflow platforms to provide an efficient means of data integration and analysis. Our partners include platforms such as INTEXcalc, Moody's Analytics and ThomsonReuters LPC.

PriceABS tackles several key problems:

1. Provides access to trade information you don't currently receive
2. Offers new depth to pricing processes and reduces the reliance on single-dealer quotes
3. Offers cloud-based access to irretrievable trade data tied up in email archives
4. Offers search by a variety of parameters: deal identifier; asset class; trade type; and date range.


EVENTS
SCI hosts well-established seminars in London and New York that have individually tailored programmes covering the most important and relevant current issues to participants, through panel discussions with leading market figures and audience-driven Q&As. Conference topics include Capital Relief Trades; Pricing & Valuation; Marketplace Lending; Regulations & Trading, and CLOs.
