May 22, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 22, 2019--

Fitch Solutions has been named “Best Counterparty Data Provider” at Waters Technology’s annual Inside Market Data/Inside Reference Data Awards. Presented yesterday in New York, the awards recognize industry excellence within market data, reference data and enterprise data management.

“Fitch Solutions is grateful to be recognized for the quality of our counterparty data and the investments we’ve made in technology to help clients get the most out of it,” says Paul Whitmore, Head of Counterparty Credit Risk. “This award demonstrates our commitment to understanding our clients’ needs and providing solutions that improve their workflow.”

Fitch Solutions’ Counterparty Risk Solution catalogues nearly 50,000 public and private institutions globally, with up to 30 years of historical records—the longest running database in the market. Coverage is particularly strong in Europe and emerging markets. When combined with new features on the Fitch Connect platform, Fitch Solutions offers some of the most robust tools available today for portfolio-level monitoring and analyzing unrated parts of the market.

“What sets Fitch Solutions apart from the competition is how the combination of high quality data and a next-generation platform provide clients with the context and insight necessary to make better credit decisions,” says Whitmore.

This award adds to a handful of accolades Fitch Solutions has received recently from Waters Technology. In the past year, Fitch Solutions was presented with the award for ‘Best Research Provider’ at the 2018 Inside Market Data/Inside Reference Data awards, and the ‘Best use of the Agile Method’ award at the American Financial Technology Awards.
