SOLVE Provides Historical Scale Fool for Past Muni Deals

Market data platform SOLVE has introduced a public finance workflow solution that shows historical scales for all muni deals, allowing for spread comparisons of where a deal priced in the past to where it might price in current market conditions.

The firm’s clients wanted a tool to deliver deal-based spreads on their terms, said Gregg Bienstock, senior vice president and group head of municipal markets at SOLVE.

This included finding historical scales for specific issuers or seeing what a specific market segment did on the new-issue side in the past, he noted.
