S&P Global Has a Collection of High-Margin, Moaty Businesses

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Rajiv Bhatia |

Whether through credit ratings, financial indexes, or commodity price reporting, S&P Global has established a wide moat from its data-driven benchmarks. Given the embedded nature of these benchmarks, S&P enjoys a strong competitive position and strong operating margins. In February 2022, S&P completed its $44 billion acquisition of IHS Markit. We believe IHS Markit's recurring revenue model will further diversify S&P revenue, limiting both the upside and downside scenarios for the firm.
