Thomson Reuters announced today the launch of Thomson Reuters DataScope Equities Plus, an enhanced, customizable bulk data feed solution for offering continuously updated reference data and end-of-day pricing.
Existing Thomson Reuters DataScope Solutions already provide comprehensive pricing, referential and security master data attributes that support pre-trade, trade and post-trade operational workflow requirements across the front, middle and back offices of financial institutions. The next-generation delivery schedule available through DataScope Equities Plus gives users an advance view of instruments and securities before the start of each trading day – enabling clients to make decisions based on the most up-to-date and reliable information available.
“With a heightened level of data distribution accessible via our strategic platform infrastructure, we continue to build upon a track record of supplying high-quality non-streaming information for the financial services industry,” said Stuart Martin, global head of Asset Servicing, Thomson Reuters. “We can now provide interested DataScope Equities customers with time-sensitive, flexible and individualized bulk information to help maximize their trade and post-trade capabilities by market. With this release, we emphasize further our global strategic commitment to offer market-leading solutions that meet both industry demands and regulatory standards.”
Reference data now is delivered in 15-minute increments, with each installment reflecting changes across all content sets and subscriptions. Pricing data is supplied end-of-day, with corrections and late-market changes delivered via DataScope Equities Plus as they become available – eliminating the need for early maintenance and historical pricing files. An innovative new “notes” feature accompanies each pricing and reference report, offering vital business and product event information, tailored to each client’s content needs.
DataScope Equities Plus also delivers customizable reports through the ability to select from XML or pipe-delimited files. Further adjustments can be made to control the order of columns, file size and delisted instruments – making the integration of data into existing systems faster and more accurate. Additionally, users will gain access to a broader range of content sets, encompassing technical indicators and future views of reference changes.
Thomson Reuters DataScope Equities platform offers a solution to meet pricing and data needs across any enterprise. The data is accessed as a bulk-file format delivered via the Internet, offering market-leading coverage of over 11 million securities, assets from over 175 exchanges, in more than 90 countries with up to 20 years of price history. The daily updates provide quality end-of-day pricing, global terms and conditions, corporate actions and cross-market identifiers, as well as Thomson Reuters proprietary instrument codes for the equities, indices, derivatives, money and FX markets.
