ICAP Information Expands Data Products Offer with EURO IRO and Global Inflation Datasets

Subscribe to our newsletter

ICAP Information, part of TP ICAP, has extended its data products offer with the release of datasets covering EURO Interest Rate Options (IRO) and Global Inflation. By making these datasets commercially available for the first time, TP ICAP aims to provide market participants with greater transparency in a traditionally opaque asset class.  

The information in the datasets can be used for price discovery and accurate securities pricing in the front office, as well as risk management, valuation and independent price verification in middle and back office functions. The information also comes with historical data.

The company says the EURO IRO dataset provides an unprecedented level of coverage and granularity in the asset class, while the Global Inflation dataset is a broader offering, encompassing a wide variety of inflation data from across the world.

Ovie Koloko, global head of product management at TP ICAP, explains: “Since last year, the Data & Analytics and Global Broking divisions have been working closely together, the aim being to take advantage of the brokers’ market leading position, gather data from across the business, and make it available to the wider community. Filling existing gaps in quality or coverage, or where information has simply never been accessible before, has been our initial focus.”

Looking forward, the company hopes to create a virtuous circle based on disseminating information more widely, driving better analytics and services in its broking division, and gaining better data. Koloko says the EURO IRO and Global Inflation datasets are just a start and customers can expect more innovative data packages over the coming year.
