Deutsche Boerse Integrates EDI Reference Data
In order to expand market data offerings, Deutsche Boerse is integrating the relevant data from Exchange Data International (EDI) into its WSS Online information system. The data covers dividend distribution, capital structure changes, exchange of shares and information relating to the annual general meeting for roughly 80,000 listed instruments from 190 markets in 110 countries.
Using WSS, Deutsche Borse provides reference data covering more than 400,000 listed securities across Germany and the rest of the world. With easy-to-use search functions, users can filter results according to their own specified criteria, such as a date or securities identification number. This information is especially useful for back offices of financial institutions for the comparison of data and verifying corporate actions.
"The demand for reliable information on corporate actions, even for less established markets, continues to rise. Thus we are expanding our offer on WSS Online by reference data from EDI," said Holger Wohlenberg, managing director of Deutsche Borse, Market Data & Analytics, in a release.
Currently, over 400 financial institutions worldwide use EDI data as their primary data source or to validate other data sources.
