Euromoney TRADEDATA has integrated Exchange Data International’s (EDI) DerivActions feed into its ViewXone service to provide a futures and options corporate actions solution. The integration extends a long-running collaboration between EDI and Euromoney TRADEDATA, and provides, according to Euromoney TRADEDATA managing director Mark Woolfenden, ‘an important part of the trade workflow that has been underserved in the past’.
The DerivActions feed is powered by EDI’s Worldwide Corporate Actions (WCA) feed, covering all corporate action event types. It provides detailed Exchange Adjustment Notices information in a standardised, machine-readable format with a link to the original Exchange Notice, where provided. The service generates two feeds that can be used as an alert service triggered by corporate actions on the underlying security: Corporate Action Alert Feed, which lists all issuers with instruments linked to the affected underlying security; and Derivative Series & Trading Lines, which lists all the derivatives instruments linked to impacted equity.
Jonathan Bloch, CEO at EDI, comments: “Our corporate actions on equity derivatives data feed has taken five years to build and pulls together corporate actions from the many equity exchanges with their corresponding derivatives. The service will allow firms to automate their processes.”
