NEW YORK (AP) — McGraw Hill Financial, the financial-data group behind Standard & Poor's ratings agency, says it has its sold consumer-ratings unit J.D. Power for $1.1 billion.
The buyer is XIO Group, a London-based investment firm established in 2014 with an aim to invest over $5 billion in North American and European companies and help them expand into Asia.
The parties said they expect the transaction to close in the third quarter.
