About US


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.

On your behalf SCI aims to help you better understand securitisation and emerging asset classes such as Capital Relief Trades and Marketplace Lending ABS, plus the traditional areas: CLOs, ABS, CDOs, CMBS, RMBS and ILS.

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

SCI's data package includes: SCI PriceABS - a daily secondary market price service covering the US & European markets (for more see next paragraph.) We also offer comprehensive coverage of new pipeline deals in marketing; a primary issuance database of deals going back to pre-crisis; information on CLO manager changes; and industry job moves. Each data feed is available to subscribers in both online and downloadable formats.

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

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, NPLs and CLOs.
