Exchange Data International Enhances Its Financial Public Holidays Service

The enhanced service covers 4 additional data sets providing timely and accurate data on holiday observances affecting financial institutions

London, 11th November 2017 – Exchange Data International (EDI), a provider of global security corporate actions, pricing and reference data, announced today the release of a new version of its Financial Public Holidays service. Monitored daily, the service provides timely and accurate information on holiday observances affecting financial institutions such as Exchanges & Trading Venues, Banks, Settlement venues and Currency traders. The latest update adds extensive coverage to our services, allowing subscribers to now access 1485 Exchanges and Trading Venues, 262 Banks, 149 Currencies, 118 Clearing Banks, and 150 Exchange holidays celebrated by Clearers. Holiday observances are now available for the next 33 years and historical data from 2001. Furthermore, by using the detailed settlement and trading hours, firms can automatically calculate the next trading day after any institutional holiday.

Jonathan Bloch, CEO of Exchange Data International says: “Financial Public Holidays is the latest addition to EDI´s suite of financial data products. As institutions increasingly trade on a worldwide basis they require details relating to public holidays, settlement periods, etc. Often this is complicated as not all political units in a country will observe the same public holidays – the obvious examples being in the USA and Canada. Financial Public Holidays is comprehensive and covers all political units in a country. Subscribers are alerted to the declaration of emergency or suddenly announced public holidays.” Financial Public Holidays data is available through EDI’s premium feed service and the web browser.
