Xtrakter, a provider of capital markets data, trade matching and regulatory reporting, welcomes TFG Fund Services as the first client to access Xtrakter’s recently launched reference data product, known as XREF.

Xtrakter, part of the Euroclear group since 2009, now offers a rich and detailed source of static data on over 300,000 different fixed income securities, via XREF, substantially expanding its coverage from 150,000 securities.

Clients now receive data and information on any of these securities (fixed rate bonds, FRNs, convertibles, government bonds, bills and Euro-medium term notes) in a tailor-made fashion.

By using XREF, clients select only the data and information required, such as interest payment details, redemption features (call, put, etc), conversion terms, syndicate member names and agents among others, all of which assist clients in managing their bond portfolios. Furthermore, enhanced search capabilities now enable clients to flag up securities information by debt instrument type, regulatory regime (REG S, Rule 144a), collateral-eligibility classification and specific features, such as Sukuk and limited recourse debt.

Martin Toyer, CEO of TFG Fund Services, welcomed the integration of TFG’s product with XREF, saying: “Supplying real-time risk analytics to the front office, and reliable valuations to the middle office, requires a focus on quality of both data and technology.

With XREF, we have found a product that we can rely upon to provide high quality data, and with Xtrakter, an organisation that we can work with to produce an excellent, seamlessly integrated product. XREF will help TFG to continue to provide the high quality service that our clients expect.”

Yannic Weber, CEO of Xtrakter, commented: “Fully in line with our ethos of providing the highest quality fixed-income data at minimal cost, we are answering a call from the market to increase the scope and granularity of securities information on our reference database.

We are delighted that clients now have the flexibility to access comprehensive fixed-income data across so many types of debt securities and geographic markets from one single provider.”
