SIX Financial Information and TNS Intensify Collaboration to Target Growth in Asia
As a leader in its field, SIX Financial Information specializes in procuring, processing and distributing international financial information. Financial market specialists at SIX Financial Information gather information from all the world’s major trading venues - directly and in real-time. The SIX Financial Information database, with its structured and encoded securities administration data for more than 7 million financial instruments, is unique in terms of the depth of information it provides and its data coverage. With offices in 23 countries, SIX Financial Information combines the advantages of global presence and local know-how.
SIX Financial Information wanted to partner with a company that could deliver financial information, including real-time market data from exchanges in Asia, to their clients. By intensifying its collaboration with Transaction Network Services (TNS) it can source real-time market data from high growth financial centres in Asia.
TNS will host communications between market data sources in Asia and SIX Financial Information’ regional data centre in Singapore. Significant among the data sources are stock exchanges in Thailand and Taiwan as well as the Shanghai and Shenzhen exchange. Global market participants will benefit from the added reliability and market cover made possible by this new phase of the collaboration.
