DPC DATA’s MuniCREDIT Solutions Reinvent Municipal Market Data

Struggling to find and leverage muni credit data?

From Official Statements to Operating Filings and Material Event notifications, the municipal bond market issues mountains of Obligor data each day. Buried in this data is information that could be valuable – if your credit analyst team could access it.

Analysts don’t have it easy. Existing muni data providers often have restrictions on data use or offer incomplete or expensive data feeds. Plus, their so-called solutions can lack coverage for bank-qualified or smaller issuers and high-yield sectors (e.g., senior living). As a result, your analysts are likely spending too much time and energy manually searching out, compiling, and standardizing data into an analyzable format.

With your team buried in data, you could be missing out on the strategic Obligor insights that can better inform your firm’s purchase decisions and portfolio holdings as well as impact client service levels.

DPC DATA’s MuniCREDIT Solutions give your firm the competitive edge

MuniCREDIT Solutions Reinvent Municipal Market DataWith over 30 years of municipal data expertise, we understand the strategic value of having comprehensive, clean, and standardized municipal financial data available at an affordable cost.

Underlying our municipal financial database is our proprietary Obligor and Sector Mapping System which allows market participants to identify the actual credit or Direct Obligor in every transaction. Users are also able to group over 30,000 distinct Obligors in the municipal market into over 100 specific sector/subsectors, each with its own risk characteristics.

Our data collection process effectively converts financial data into a machine-readable format. This can be used for a variety of research and trading applications, including Artificial Intelligence models.

Municipal sector mapping example

DPC collects, standardizes and maps comprehensive data for each municipal sector.

We developed our database in partnership with experienced credit analysts and other power users. As a result, we know it is highly versatile, easy to use and easily integrated into your own research and trading workflow.

The result? Scrubbed data and actionable information

Our MuniCREDIT Solutions suit a variety of credit-related needs, for example:

  • Complete CUSIP-Obligor-Sector mapping for all outstanding U.S. municipal securities based on our proprietary mapping methodology
  • Financial and Operating Data for over 25,000 distinct Obligors
  • Custom Financial Data Reports

The MuniCREDIT portfolio includes:

  • MuniCREDIT Online – a subscription-based platform offering on-demand access to DPC’s database for users conducting detailed credit analysis. As an option, clients can add MuniCLIMATE Scores to their subscription. This enables users to analyze climate exposure in the context of the municipal issuer’s overall fiscal resources. We offer both historical and forward-looking climate data from our partners, so clients can get what they need for their decision-making processes.
  • MuniCREDIT Financials – financial data for the 24,000+ Obligors, spanning all major sectors. Available as a data feed or in customized report formats.
  • MuniCREDIT Mapping – Users can replace their internal sector mapping scheme – which most likely only covers their own holdings – with DPC’s Obligor and Sector Mapping. The DPC methodology identifies the true Direct Obligor in every active issue – the only criterion is “Credit” not “Purpose” – then re-maps all Sector Classifications based on this identification.
