Nordic Financial Systems (NFS), a provider of technical and business integration services to the treasury industry, has launched Market Information Interface, which allows users of its Finance KIT to receive end-of-day pricing data from vendors including Reuters and Bloomberg for portfolio valuation and risk measurement purposes. According to NFS, MII – developed in conjunction with a leading Swedish government institution – provides an alternative to companies who do not require this information in real-time as it is currently offered. The MII product provides static and semi-static data using File Transfer Protocol (FTP) files from a host-to-host link with a market information provider. The upload of the data feed is scheduled on the Finance KIT server and can be configured to run as often as needed.
