MSRB TO PROVIDE NEW HISTORICAL PRODUCTS FOR MUNICIPAL
SECURITIES DISCLOSURE DOCUMENTS AND DATA
Alexandria, VA – The Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) announced today that it will provide new information products for historical documents and certain related data housed on the MSRB’s Electronic Municipal Market Access (EMMA®) website. The new products, available June 2012, provide information vendors and others with convenient access to official statements, continuing disclosure and municipal variable rate securities data and documents dating to 2009.
“The MSRB is providing these historical information products so that complete sets of municipal market documents and data are available in a consolidated way,” said MSRB Executive Director Lynnette Kelly. “All the information in the historical products is available on the EMMA website, however these new products deliver all such documents and data through an electronic feed to provide users with maximum flexibility in their use of these critical resources.”
The MSRB’s EMMA website is a centralized online database that provides free public access to official disclosure documents and trade data associated with municipal bonds issued in the United States. The EMMA website makes available real-time trade prices, primary market and continuing disclosure documents and current credit ratings for more than one million outstanding securities, as well as current interest rate information, liquidity documents and other information for most variable rate municipal securities.
The MSRB provides these historical products and other real-time automated subscription feeds to data and documents posted on EMMA for a fee. Read more here.
