About Us

SCI is an independent, employee owned, financial information provider focusing on the global securitisation markets. Founded in 2006, it offers subscribers an array of products across News, Data and Events.

SCI News provides essential daily content on all sectors of the global securitisation market – ABS, CLOs, CMBS, RMBS and Synthetics, notably CRT/SRT or risk-sharing deals. It identifies opportunities for subscribers through the focused analysis of innovation in structuring, trading and regulation and the development of new and unusual securitisation asset classes and markets. Subscribers also receive regular longer in-depth "premium content" features covering trends or significant issues across all securitisation sectors.

Subscribers can also opt for SCI's Markets services, which offer deal-focused information for the primary and secondary global CLO and Australian/European/UK ABS/MBS markets through intra-day updates and searchable issuance databases along with high level CLO BWIC pricing and commentary.

A capital relief trades issuance database giving details of deals done in the CRT/SRT or risk-sharing space since 2006 is also available to subscribers for an additional cost. Index subscribers can also access SCI's proprietary Significant Risk Transfer Index – the SRTx™ 

SCI offers two stand-alone data products:

Publishes secondary market pricing from BWICs on European and US CLOs/CDOs and ABS/MBS. SCI PriceABS includes a calendar of upcoming auctions, together with price talk, covers and daily market commentary; combined with proprietary DM, yield and WAL data.

SCI Valuations
A boutique pricing service for customers’ securitisation portfolios, specialising in European CLOs, ABS and RMBS and US CLOs. SCI Valuations aims to eliminate pricing uncertainty and challenges by providing defensible pricing with full disclosure and transparency.
