A Window On Asia

11 May 2015 by lberuti

In our daily blog, most of the focus is on American or European companies. But while at the moment you will only find European and US credit indices, Datagrapple publishes information on the 500 most liquid entities according to DTTC and also the constituents of some Asian indices. If your favourite pick (or your biggest exposure) is an Asian name, you should definitely have a go and see whether it is included in Datagrapple’s universe. For instance, on the above grapple, you can see than TOSH’s ( Toshiba Corp ) $2.8bln drop in market capitalisation today triggered by withdrawal of their earnings forecast pending an internal probe into improper accounting on infrastructure projects was matched by a 55bps surge of its 5 year risk premium to 125bps.
