Much of the data involves translating source documents each day from dozens of native languages to English.
Our fixed income corporate actions include:
New bond issues
Changes in terms & conditions
Details of interest payments for both fixed and floating rate issues
...and more, even for complex fixed income instruments.
As well as giving details of interest payments for both fixed and floating rate issues, we provide a comprehensive coverage of corporate actions events and thus a complete overview of changes.
History: As far back as December 2002.
Updates: Corporate actions files are updated 3 times a day (e.g. after the close in Asia/Pacific, Europe/Middle East/Africa, and the Americas). We provide a "master file" that includes all of the requested data as of that date. Then assuming you subscribe to updates going forward, we provide a "delta file" each day going forward with only the changes to the "master file". A full refresh of data is also available upon request.
Delivery: Bulk files are delivered as delimited text files via download. API also available.
