Pluris Valuation licenses securities valuation data to IDC

Interactive Data Corporation (IDC)—the provider of financial market data, analytics and related solutions—is now offering daily valuations for Municipal Auction Rate Securities (ARS), including Student Loan Auction Rate Securities (SLARS), from Pluris Valuation Advisors, LLC, a specialist in market-based valuations of illiquid securities. “Since the auctions for these securities began to fail last year, we have generated monthly and quarterly valuation reports based on ARS transactions, including daily valuations for SLARS in the secondary markets,” says Espen Robak, Pluris president. Congrats to Espen!
