Newsletter October 18, 2018
It’s been an exciting past three quarters in the world of data and global economics. Amidst the recent developments in standardisation and regulation impacting the data reference and financial sector, we have been busy developing new partnerships, providing our clients with new data solutions, winning awards, and attending relevant economic events in order to stay on top of all the latest conversations and trends around reference data and multiple data solutions that matter to you and your investors. Our replacement service for NYSE Corporate Actions is now one year on, and our clients and new contacts are realising that we do data ‘differently’. If you want to find out more on any of our products or our data trials, please get in touch and let us know what product(s) most interest you and what you’d like to trial.
Our Latest Partnership
Exchange Data International (EDI) now has comprehensive and complete reference and corporate action datasets featured on Crux. Crux is a leading data engineering and information supply chain operator that has been transforming the information supply chain by helping businesses connect with the data they need, when and how they need it. Their cloud-based technology solution connects data suppliers with customers and data users.
Jonathan Bloch, CEO of EDI said: “We see the increasing importance of intermediary platforms which link consumers to manufacturers of data. Crux enables us to reach a market with which we normally do not interact, namely buy side users of reference and corporate action data. We see Crux as facilitating a faster growth path for Exchange Data.” More info here .

EDI Wins Best Corporate Initiative of the Year
EDI captured the award for the ‘Best Corporate Initiative of the Year’ category at the 16th annual Inside Reference Data and Inside Market Data Awards. The award was in recognition of the new EDI NYSE Replacement Service. Launched in September 2017 by EDI, it is a complete replacement for NYSE Corporate Actions at less than 50% of the redistribution costs charged by NYSE. EDI now provides institutions with a complete like-for-like and cost-effective alternative for the NYSE corporate actions data.
Jonathan Bloch, founder and CEO of EDI said: “We are very honoured to receive such a highly-regarded award; I’m delighted that EDI has been recognised for bringing much-needed competition to the data sector. We will continue to provide our clients and the wider market with choice, quality and value as we seeking to increase ‘vendor replacement’ offerings.” Learn more about our Corporate Actions Data Trials or to speak to one of our team members about the products we have for North America, the UK and Global/Worldwide data please get in touch.
