Behind the scenes of any financial trading firm is a huge investment in technology and information services. Companies compete to have vital market intelligence delivered and processed by complex algorithmic tools, in order to execute deals a micro-second before rivals. The mass of information fuelling this process is known as Market Data.
Leading the way across the world in managing the ever-increasing sophistication of that data is MDSL Market Data Manager™. Offered for over a decade as a software-as-a-service solution, it’s now also available as part of a fully outsourced service: MDSL Market Data eXpert™.
Today, MDSL Market Data Manager is recognised as the de facto standard for proactive market data contract management, business insight reporting, invoice reconciliation and spend analysis.
New markets and electronic trading venues are constantly emerging: as a result, managers are faced with a bewildering array of service choices and options. Whichever they choose, it’s guaranteed to be expensive: globally, financial firms currently spend over $30 Billion on market data services every year.
When costs are this high and commitments so far-reaching, no responsible trading business should be without a proven market data management solution. For that reason, it’s reassuring to know that, since 1995, MDSL Market Data Manager (MDM) has been in constant use by over 90% of the world's major financial houses.
