EDI Launches Its Equity Analytics Data Service

Following the launch of its bond derived dataset, EDI adds equity analytics to its data offering.

London, September 22 2015 – Securities and corporate actions reference data specialist Exchange Data International (EDI) today announced it has added equity analytics data, Worldwide Equity Analytics, to its comprehensive securities data offering.

This new service enables clients to identify the sources of risk and returns in their portfolios and project their volatility. It comprises a customisable set of more than 60 equity derived data fields such as Average Daily Volume, Simple Moving Averages, Alpha, Beta, and R-squared.

In addition to the analytics data, the service contains key reference and pricing data providing clients with a comprehensive overview of the global equity market.

Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Bloch says: “In the wake of the financial crisis, governance, compliance and risk management have become prime factors affecting financial services. As a data provider it is important for us to ensure we supply clients with data that enables them to make informed decisions and allows them to comply with their risk management criteria.”

He adds: “The Worldwide Equity Analytics service was the logical next step after the launch last year of our bond analytics dataset, bondΣ.”

The Worldwide Equity Analytics service is available as an end of day feed via FTP. The file can be customised as regards data fields, exchanges or countries covered.
