Mergermarket Group, a BC Partners portfolio company, has acquired Creditflux, a London-based provider of intelligence, analysis, data and events covering CLO and credit fund pricing, investments, trading and returns.

The deal is expected to accelerate the global expansion of Mergermarket Group’s real-time fixed income intelligence and data provision.

“For the past decade, Debtwire and Xtract Research have blazed a trail of market-leading coverage in the field of corporate debt analysis. Creditflux provides valuable analysis of fixed income investors, giving our valued subscribers access to deeper analysis of the full credit investment cycle.”

Creditflux managing editor and founder Mike Peterson said: “I am delighted that Creditflux is joining forces with Mergermarket Group, a company which shares our relentless focus on providing original and insightful intelligence to the fixed income community.

“The combination of Debtwire, Xtract Research and Creditflux will create an information power house for the global credit market.”
