Robust reference data coverage

Reference data

We provide the most comprehensive reference data to the global financial and investment management community.

Flexible and broad reference data you need

We are an originator, consolidator, and value-add re-distributor of security and financial instrument data with hundreds of sources and partners.

Whether securities and investment instrument reference data, terms and conditions, or pricing, we deliver the most accurate, robust information through DataScope.

Our highly experienced data professionals are located all around the world. We continually monitor data quality metrics that track accuracy, timeliness, and completeness, and use the findings to improve our workflow and data capture processes. 

Reference data refers to static or dynamic data to help classify financial instruments. Reference data increasingly includes mnemonic codes (ISIN, RIC, PermID, etc), securities description (name of the security, exchange it is traded on, currency, expiry date, call/put indicators), regulatory reference data (reference data linked to specific regulation, which will demand specific reporting obligations, i.e. MiFID II reference data), and parent company and issuer relationship, to name just a few.

The flexibility and breadth of our coverage fits virtually any enterprise or application data requirement, giving you the content you need.
