Bloomberg’s Evaluated Pricing service, BVAL, supplies independent and transparent evaluated pricing daily for over 2.5 million securities across all fixed income asset classes, including thinly-traded and hard-to-price fixed income securities.  Our customers rely on us to understand markets and analyze complex structures which allow them to make thoughtful investment decisions, which ultimately creates more value for the investor. The value of retirement accounts, pension funds, etc, are measured against our data.  Our mission is to drive greater transparency, liquidity and safety in global fixed income markets.

To produce this pricing data, we absorb billions of data points from hundreds of financial markets every day leveraging highly scalable and fault tolerant streaming technology (think Kafka, Redis, Airflow, Flink). We pipe this data through pricing algorithms which employ quantitative and machine learning techniques derived by working closely with market experts.  This process produces the high quality pricing that the market and our customers need.  We also develop applications that provide intelligent analytics and transparency into these prices.
