SCI/MF&Co SRTx™

Significant Risk Transfer Index

The SRTx™ (Significant Risk Transfer Index) is a surveyed fixed income index suite that tracks estimated new-issue pricing spreads and market sentiment for the significant risk transfer markets in major global regions. The Index suite is comprised of a quantitative spread index, which is based on survey estimates for a representative transaction (the “SRTx™ Benchmark Deal”) containing specified terms for structure and pool/portfolio composition, and several qualitative indexes, which measure market sentiment on pricing volatility, transaction liquidity, and credit risk. The Index coverage includes the large corporate, and small & medium-sized enterprise (SME) reference pool/portfolio types, and spans the European Union (EU) and U.S. economic regions. Surveyed and recalculated monthly, the Index provides market participants with new, added transparency for the significant risk transfer market.
