The explosion of financial data has forced market participants to seek new ways to manage both the quantity and quality of this information and to reduce risk within the financial industry. “SFB looks at this partnership as an important step in providing critical and accurate financial reference data to its customers who demand excellence along with unrivalled and unparalleled customer service”, says Clifford.
Jonathan Bloch, CEO of EDI says,“We are pleased to work with SFB on developing a robust service providing the industry with the most accurate and reliable options data. We are planning on extending the service coverage to all exchanges worldwide focusing on key markets first and clients’ specific requests.”
Both datasets provide detailed information on all listed options including option contracts reference data, symbology, issue deliverable, corporate actions and open interests. Additional data elements such as intraday strike additions, dividend and end-of-day prices are available for US options and will be added to the Canadian dataset on clients’ request.
