Based on some formula, not on research of traders. notes from SMER 18 Nov Pricing Recipe - the prices that are input to that derived price. Notes from SMER 25 Nov If the instrument has not been trading, then there would normally need to be prices for valuing these, so you would go to an independent provider. You would also identify who you sourced it from. You would not put your own numbers in as this would not be impartial. Also since only the very liquid securities are those that trade, a lot of bonds in a Pf are not regularly traded and so there is not a market price, so you use a yield curve and interpolate on this to come up with an estimate of fair value.
