SunGard Enhances MarketMap with Chinese Content and Risk Tool

SunGard has released a new version of its MarketMap market data solution that provides Chinese language content, a reputational risk tool and new list browsers to help support faster research by asset class.

As trading volumes in Asia rise, the region’s demand for financial information is growing, led by China.(i)  The inclusion of Unicode, a global standard for representing characters and integers in multiple languages, in the new version of MarketMap gives customers the ability to view relevant market data and news in Simplified Chinese.

The latest version of MarketMap also adds a reputational risk metric to help investors better understand their investment exposure from a social, media and environmental perspective.  The tool monitors and helps identify companies and projects with environmental and corporate governance risk exposure.

Douglas B Taylor, founder and managing partner of Burton-Taylor International Consulting LLC, said, “Providing investors with low-latency market data solutions that are cost-effective, require minimal infrastructure and provide real-time financial information from liquidity points in the global marketplace are growing priorities for market data managers around the world. As the Chinese-speaking markets mature, solutions like these are showing increasing demand.”

Robert Jeanbart, executive vice president and global head of SunGard’s MarketMap business unit, said, “Growing interest in global investing, particularly in emerging markets, needs to be supported with the appropriate language capabilities.  The latest version of SunGard’s MarketMap addresses these trends by providing both real-time and historical data support to enhance the availability, display and analysis of appropriate information when, where and how it is needed.”
