Fitch Ratings launched a CMBS performance analytics service for EMEA today. The enhanced surveillance pages on the Fitch research Web site now provide advanced EMEA CMBS performance metrics and analysis in a standardized form.
Each transactions surveillance page offers a single source of data analysis and credit opinion, tracking current loan and portfolio data against the original characteristics of the transaction. The spreadsheet download functionality allows users to incorporate Fitch data and analysis into their own surveillance activities.
The data can be used for surveillance purposes in the presented form or can be an input into additional analysis. The enhanced performance service is currently available for all U.K. CMBS transactions, with Continental European CMBS deals scheduled to follow in 1Q09.
Fitchs updated EMEA CMBS surveillance pages meet the markets need for fully comparable, consistent transaction data, said Rodney Pelletier, managing director at Fitch.
