SIX Telekurs and Inforex, an official data vendor of the Athens Stock Exchange, have signed an agreement to pursue a common growth strategy in the Greek market. The agreement enables Inforex to offer international financial market data drawn from the products and the unique database of SIX Telekurs.

Elena Pateropoulou, managing director of Inforex, comments, “The alliance with SIX Telekurs provides Inforex with the opportunity to enhance its products and services in order to meet the most pressing needs of its customer base for international data feeds. It also provides the opportunity for Inforex to become even broader and more competitive in its offerings. Our partnership delivers a fully integrated solution that combines strengths in infrastructure, systems integration, and strong customer support from Inforex, together with SIX Telekurs’ high level expertise in financial products and services. Our innovative solutions are driven by both parties’ strong IT and financial knowledge and experience.”

Adriano Bazzi, head of SIX Telekurs Italy/Southern Europe, says, “Especially at this point in time, the Greek market needs professional services and excellent local support. Teaming up with Inforex will enable us to cover these needs in the best possible, and most cost effective, way. The combination of Inforex’s local presence and market knowledge with our established international product offering represents a promising constellation for us and for the customers in this market.”

The SIX Telekurs database includes real-time prices and securities administration data for almost 7 million instruments transacted at over 850 data sources. “This is one of the major attractions for Inforex in this joint project. It gives us the opportunity to extend our offering and to cover a broader range of customer requests,” explained Pateropoulou.

Both managers hope to deliver sustainable and innovative solutions to current and future clients, as well as market oriented content and professional support.
