Reuters and Paladyne Systems, solutions provider for the hedge fund industry, have announced the integration of Reuters DataScope Onsite with the Paladyne suite of products. Reuters DataScope Onsite provides pricing, factors, terms and conditions, corporate actions, cashflows and analytical data on the universe of asset-backed securities including MBS, Agency Pools, Whole Loans, TBA Pools and MBS derivative products such as CMOs. The joint product offering is a response to an increased demand for comprehensive asset-backed data within the alternative investment industry, the partners say.
This is a new development within an existing relationship between Reuters and Paladyne. Reuters has continued to actively market its product and data solutions to hedge funds and their service providers, and since announcing their relationship in mid-2006, Reuters and Paladyne are now servicing more than 40 new clients using the data as part of Paladyne’s fully hosted ASP platform, they say. This offering provides clients with access to data from both the Reuters DataScope Fixed Income bulk data feeds and the fixed income detailed data from the Reuters DataScope Onsite product. Both Paladyne Security Master and Paladyne Price Master are fully integrated with Reuters DataScope bulk and Reuters DataScope Onsite feeds.
The Paladyne suite is available either as a fully hosted solution or as an on-site local installation.
As well as its existing relationship with Reuters, Paladyne has other data vendor relationships in place, including with Standard & Poor’s and Interactive Data. It forged a relationship with Markit for its data late last year, and with Thomson shortly before that.
