Charles River, an enterprise-wide, front- and middle-office investment management solution provider, has enhanced its Managed Data Service with the addition of Thomson Reuters pricing and reference data. This is the latest in a series of continued enhancements to the Charles River Data Service which provides benchmark, reference and issuer data, real-time pricing and new security setup.

“Ensuring consistent, quality data for end users is one of the biggest challenges for investment firms industry wide; Charles River’s Data Service solves this challenge for clients while simplifying operations and lowering costs,” said Brad Haigis, director, Charles River Data Service. “We continue to partner with top-tier data sources to enhance our service, which currently delivers global equity and US fixed income reference data. The addition of Thomson Reuters pricing, reference and legal entity data, as well as analytics represents a strategic expansion to provide clients with a more complete global offering, including security master data for international corporate and government fixed income instruments.”

The Charles River Data Service offers a single, cost-effective data feed for all asset classes. Data is aggregated from multiple sources, validated, enriched, and directly fed ‘hand-in-glove’ in the Charles River Investment Management Solution (Charles River IMS) and managed to give clients complete, accurate and timely data throughout the trade lifecycle. It is an integral part of Charles River’s Software as a Service (SaaS) solution and is also available to legacy client-hosted environments.

“We’re delighted to partner with Charles River to have them resell our data as a key component of their data service,” said Kate Toumazi, global head of Risk Data Services, Thomson Reuters. “Clients are increasingly looking for rich, global, high-quality data covering all asset classes, and this strategic agreement with Charles River validates Thomson Reuters offering as meeting those customer demands.”
