Best Practice Solutions for the Municipal Security Lifecycle
Streamlined Research and Municipal Bond Disclosure
MuniPOINTS helps your firm comply with MSRB Rules G-17, G-19, and G-47 more easily. So no more flipping through lengthy official statements to extract the relevant facts. MuniPOINTS condenses “just the facts” into an easy-to-read brief that streamlines your municipal bond disclosure compliance and your sales processes.
Concise summaries for easy comparisons
The most popular DPC DATA information product, MuniPOINTS documents are concise, descriptive summaries of municipal bond issues. They include bullet-pointed text, extracted directly from the official statements, with no analytic content.
Indexed by CUSIP, MuniPOINTS fact sheets are quick to access. They offer rapid understanding of bond characteristics, as well as easy comparison of different issues.
Key benefits of MuniPOINTS
- An auditable best practice sales and compliance solution for retail and institutional dealers with well over 200,000 users in the marketplace.
- Fact sheets are not considered to be ‘advertising’ by FINRA. They are extracted directly from the final official statement, thus mitigating compliance risk. Most importantly, this gives salespeople and traders one-click print and email functionality to send comprehensive disclosure information, related documents, and relevant news to customers.
- Integrated with multiple trading platforms to deliver MuniPOINTS directly to users without any additional IT integrations.
- Can be integrated into proprietary systems via our Direct Access portal. In other words, you need minimal IT support.
Available to market professionals via a Web portal or integrated with a trading or portfolio management system, MuniPOINTS is also available through many of our platform-provider partners. These include ICE Bondpoint, TMC and Tradeweb Direct.
New COVID-19 disclosure feature
Although MSRB filings may mention ‘COVID’ in their headlines, we found many instances where the material event had nothing to do with the pandemic. The COVID-19 Disclosure Flag builds on DPC’s proprietary and proven workflows which allow us to drill further into the data. As a result, we can identify and tag only those disclosures which are truly COVID-based.
The MuniPOINTS COVID-19 Disclosure Flag enables users, at the point of sale, to communicate efficiently and with increased confidence to their clients about pandemic-related filings. In addition, the Flag enables municipal bond investors to use MuniPOINTS and MuniGUARD News to track the pandemic’s impact on their own portfolio holdings.
This feature is available exclusively to DPC DATA’s MuniPOINTS clients as part of their current subscriptions. It is part of DPC DATA’s continuing strategy to roll out product enhancements based on client feedback, as well as market conditions, to stay in tune with client needs.
