Smoother Processing of Bond Corporate Actions.
A great compliment to our Bond Reference Data, Bond Prices, and Bond Yield Analytics, DIH offers bond corporate actions, covering government and corporate bonds.
Firms big & small rely on our bond corporate actions. They face high risk because corporate action processing is complicated, deadline-driven, not standardized, and to a large extent still manual.
Failure in handling a single, complex corporate action has the potential to result in a loss running into tens of millions of dollars.
That’s why firms rely upon DIH’s data.

SOURCES OF OUR BOND CORPORATE ACTIONS
All of our bond corporate actions data is collected daily from exchanges, central banks, ministries of finance, and lead managers, as well as paying, calculation, and transfer agents. Much of the raw data involves translating source documents each day from dozens of native languages to English.
To ensure quality, at least two (2) sources are used when possible and all data is algorithmically and manually reviewed before being made available for download by our clients. This laborious process ensures the most complete and accurate bond reference data possible.
