London has chalked up another financial technology investment today: Index Ventures has led a $7 million Series A round in Credit Benchmark, a startup that’s looking to improve financial market benchmarks by aggregating anonymized credit risk data from multiple banks. Credit Benchmark describes its system as a “contributed data” model. The data is rigorously anonymized — it says it has created “robust technological, security and legal frameworks for managing contributed data, guaranteeing the confidentiality of individual contributors’ estimates and allowing it to act as a trusted intermediary." The company has so far managed to sign up a dozen global banks in the US, UK and Continental Europe committed to supplying data.
