ValueLink and Reuters Extend Relationship

ValueLink Information Services and Reuters have extended their relationship by increasing the amount of Reuters data carried by ValueLink as well as increasing Reuters’ status to a key provider.

ValueLink provides financial data collection, consolidation and cleansing, and offers tailored solutions, which can be delivered in the format the customer desires. Reuters first forged its relationship with the company early last year (Reference Data Review, February 2005), announcing that its Datascope services would be available as a primary source in ValueLink’s validated data service. 

Reuters DataScope, available by separate contract, was incorporated into ValueLink’s intraday, closing price, corporate action and dividends validation services. Reuters DataScope reference data was also made available via ValueLink.

Since then Reuters has launched DataScope Select (Reference Data Review, January 2006), which, among other things, offers increased data coverage especially in the area of fixed income evaluated data – an area that is receiving more and more interest.

This latest announcement between ValueLink and Reuters highlights the increased content and stronger relationship between the two vendors.

Specifically, new data now available to ValueLink customers via the DataScope source includes:
Fixed-income evaluated pricing for over one million U.S. securities, plus evaluated prices on over 60,000 European securities in four major currencies (Euro, Sterling, Swiss franc and U.S. dollar),

Contributed pricing direct from the marketplace, from over 600 sources and 70 exchanges.
Corporate actions data, including recently added new markets and companies to global coverage, the launch of a Public Equity and IPO service, and expanding delivery options via an ISO 15022-compliant data feed.

Deep reference data including global terms and conditions.
As part of ValueLink’s new operating model, the service will be available to all current and new customers under direct license from Reuters. Reuters DataScope Pricing & Reference Data customers will also be able to benefit from this service as a premium, managed data source delivered direct from ValueLink. Additionally, all new data added to DataScope in the future will be available to ValueLink customers.
