Best Practice Solutions for the Municipal Security Lifecycle
Your one-stop shop for consistent, reliable financial and operating data for the active Municipal Market
MuniCREDIT Financials solves four major Muni data problems
We know a consistent, reliable source of financial and operating data has been missing for the full, active Muni Market. We created MuniCREDIT Financials because our underwriter and portfolio management clients needed help with these data challenges:
Incomplete Data Sets
If you’re like many of our clients, you’re typically stuck with subscribing to multiple data vendors who have different data sets. As a result, you
- Rely on complicated rules to determine when to use each data set;
- Combine vendor data and fill in the gaps as best you can;
- Spend too much time, effort, and IT resources on data collection.
Too many coverage gaps
To complicate things even further, some vendors offer their data on proprietary platforms. This often means you
- Face major restrictions on data use;
- Can’t take data off the platform to bring it in-house;
- Wind up with many coverage gaps;
- Can’t maintain a consistent data set across your business operations.
Few data templates used
Once you’ve assembled the data, you realize it doesn’t all make sense.
- The Muni Market is complicated!
- Most data vendors shoehorn all the data into one of two broad categories: General Obligations or Revenue.
- Many of the Obligors in these categories have little in common — for instance, a Charter School Obligor and a Multi-Family Housing Obligor.
Infrequent data updates
Finally, you’re likely frustrated by how long it takes for data to be updated.
- Data gets stale quickly.
- You can’t always be sure you’re using the most up-to-date information.
- Investment decisions suffer.
MuniCREDIT Financials key features
Financial and operating data collected
MuniCREDIT Financials brings together financial and operating data. We collect data regardless of accounting practice – GAAP or non-GAAP, we’ve got you covered.
We have a full team of analysts who do a double-blind capture and then a secondary team to QA the data. This process ensures data accuracy.
Platform-neutral data source
With MuniCREDIT Financials you are not locked into paying for another platform and its analytical or portfolio management capabilities to access the data you need. You have complete flexibility to feed the data into your current workflow, without any disruption.
Covers 30,000+ distinct Obligors
ALL active Obligors in the Market are covered, including Issuers of any size, big or small. We also collect data for Unrated Issuers and High Yield Sectors, such as Senior Living and Charter Schools.
Timely updates, as data is provided to the Market
Updates to data happen almost in real-time. Our goal is to get you updates on or near the same day the Financials are made public. Because timely data is essential in this market.
Customizable data formats
MuniCREDIT Financials is available as a data feed. We will provide you a historical file which includes the Full Financial Database, plus end-of-day update files. Alternatively, if a simple report is all you need, or you have limitations with IT integration, we can provide data in a Custom Financial Data Report. This can be white labelled and include your firm’s logo, if desired.
Data collection templates specific to Obligor Sectors
The Muni World is much more complicated, compared to the corporate world, when reviewing financial statements. That’s why we’ve invested time and effort to develop collection templates for different sectors.
Easier data comparisons
We have data templates to address the major differences in financials for Local GOs, School Districts, Development Districts, Housing, Education, and Healthcare. When you use our data, you will always be comparing apples to apples.
What’s more, many of our templates include 100 or more data elements. This is enough for you to calculate most of the financial ratios essential to your business.
