SRL Global Chooses SIX Telekurs for Pricing and Index Data

SRL Global, originally established as a trading and technology joint venture with Man Group Plc in 2007, now an independent specialist technology boutique offering its services to financial buy side institutions, recently signed an agreement with SIX Telekurs UK Ltd to take end of day pricing and index benchmark data for its NEXUS Enterprise Solution. SIX Telekurs’ apiD solution provided a comprehensive interface to their existing technology.

SIX Telekurs are providing end of day pricing data to SRL Global through their Valordata Feed (VDF) and Intraday Pricing Service (IPS). The SIX Telekurs’ apiD solution enables timely loading of the data into SRL Global’s NEXUS Enterprise Solution, which produces analytics for their client portfolios on their positions, including their exposures and risks.

SRL Global’s NEXUS Enterprise Solution establishes a secure repository on behalf of the client, which it populates with, cleaned reconciled and enriched data extracted from the client’s own third parties to produce a comprehensive, aggregated set of portfolio holdings. This warehouse stores position level data together with any related static information through the life of the portfolio. Its integrated front office application empowers the client to interrogate their own data to see for the first time how individual allocations impact their portfolio of alternative and traditional investments through the analysis of the unpositional level data.

CEO at SRL Global, Neil Puri, comments: “Our business depends on our ability to offer operational resilience and reliable, transparent data to minimise risk exposures. SIX Telekurs’ VDF and IPS data proved to be just that. Furthermore, we were very happy that the interface of apiD to our Enterprise solution could be integrated quickly and simply without the need to re-engineer our own infrastructure. SIX Telekurs were competently able to demonstrate they had the global data coverage, delivery mechanisms and support that we required in order to deliver this solution within a matter of a few weeks”.

Martin Cole, managing director for SIX Telekurs U.K Ltd, said: “VDF sources at source; a major advantage to businesses who adhere to strict codes of accuracy and transparency. Our apiD solution reduced the need for SRL Global to take on extra cost to re-engineer their platforms to suit our technology; a very simple process, quick and seamless.”
