Technology Awards 2017 – Best Market Data Solution

Best Market Data Solution


In an ever-changing and complex global financial market, private bankers derive significant competitive advantage from the quality of real-time solutions and market analysis they receive; and now more than ever, digital channels are the primary means to deliver such intel.

A globally-recognised information provider in its own right, Thomson Reuters market data is used by over 70% of Asia’s private bankers who leverage the firm’s broad toolset to sift out noise and access with the data that is most relevant to their requirements through a variety of channels.

Thomson Reuters platform provides market data from a number of solutions including Thomson Reuters Enterprise Platform (TREP), Thomson Reuters Velocity Analytics (TRVA) and Thomson Reuters Knowledge Direct for Wealth Management (TRKD).

TREP, a powerful market data streaming platform, and TRVA, a high-speed data analytics platform, provide customers with a competitive advantage by offering ultra-low latency information on over 40 million exchange-traded instruments and a time series data archive that dates back to 1753. As complementary systems, TREP and TRVA are essential for the breakneck delivery and understanding of global market data.

Meanwhile, TRKD is an application programming interface (API) designed explicitly for the wealth management industry that offers access to Thomson Reuters library of news, company information and financial market data. The API integrates seamlessly with wealth managers’ client-facing investment portals and online trading platforms and is an efficient way for banks to empower their staff and customers with first-rate content.

Reflecting just how compelling Thomson Reuters solutions are, the firm recently signed on Siam Commercial Bank as a client, with the Thai lender using the platform for its newly opened investment centre, where it provides bank clients with open platform access to market data and information.
