Standard & Poor’s Adds More Data to SecurityMaster Services Platform

Standard & Poor’s SecurityMaster Services, a web services delivery platform that provides direct access to a variety of securities data, has added access to three new reference data databases: the ISIDPlus global cross reference database, Cusip Syndicated Loan Service and the Anna Service Bureau’s ISIN database. The vendor has added this new data to the platform, which already includes access to the Cusip Master File data, in order to provide a more comprehensive service.

Jim Taylor, managing director at Standard & Poor’s, explains: “By providing easier access to these extensive and timely global reference data sources, Standard & Poor’s continues to expand how institutional investors, global banks and other market participants can obtain more information and insight into international securities. Standard & Poor’s SecurityMaster Services, using API technology, gives our clients the flexibility and tools they require to efficiently integrate this reference and cross-reference content into the workflow solutions they are building.”

Standard & Poor’s SecurityMaster Services is an XML-based web services platform that provides direct access to an array of datasets. These new additions, bring the number of data sets covered by SecurityMaster Services to four: Cusip Master File, ISIDPlus, Anna’s ISIN Service and Cusip Syndicated Loan Service.

It is a modular solution that Standard & Poor’s claims enables clients to tailor a data search for a specific one time need or develop customised, recurring data downloads. Search results are retrieved in XML format and clients can search and retrieve information from the platform using predefined parameters, including issuer name, security description, dated date, coupon, maturity date, domicile, and last update.
