Panjiva's global supply chain data is now available over S&P's data feed management system Xpressfeed. This includes global trade and transaction details of goods, with information on buyers, sellers, product descriptions and values through a single integrated data source. The inclusion of global supply chain data in market and financial data feeds is a mark of how ramping trade tensions and threatened tariffs are affecting the global financial markets as well as global economic outlook.

Users can combine existing S&P global financial and markets data sets on Xpressfeed with alternative data from the global supply chain landscape to create forward-looking quantitative research and modeling.

Panjiva now covers over one billion transaction records that include over 40% of global trade and 13 million company-to-company relationships. 

Warren Breakstone, managing director and chief product officer for S&P Global Market Intelligence, said, "With trade policy and tariffs a key topic of interest to institutional investors, governmental bodies and corporations, we are pleased to add Panjiva to our Xpressfeed delivery. This alternative dataset further complements S&P Global's supply chain and company relationship capabilities to make for a more informed experience for our users. Panjiva offers the most extensive collection of global trade data, while Xpressfeed is the industry standard for bulk data delivery. In combination, this makes for a compelling client solution."

Josh Green, co-founder of Panjiva, said: "One of our goals from the outset was bringing transparency to global supply chains, and now we're leveraging S&P Global's technology to help clients make sense of the rapidly expanding universe of unstructured data. Panjiva's integration to Xpressfeed is a significant milestone for S&P Global Market Intelligence, and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing transparency to the markets through differentiated datasets, as well as our commitment to helping customers understand global trading relationships."

S&P acquired Panjiva in February 2018. Since the acquisition, over 600,000 Panjiva companies have been linked to S&P Global Market Intelligence data, helping users understand connections in the global supply chain. Additionally, S&P Global Market Intelligence's industry-leading corporate hierarchy data has been integrated into the Panjiva platform.

Panjiva's supply chain data is the latest alternative dataset available over Xpressfeed, which also includes machine readable transcripts and asset level data across the financial institutions, real estate, energy, metals & mining and media industries.
