Global Data Services
SIX Financial Information maintains a real time database of financial information sourced from 1,500 global securities exchanges, institutional contributors and proprietary sources.
For the past 15 years, the annual Systems in the City Awards recognize industry excellence in market and reference data as well as data management solutions. SIX Financial Information was named ‘Best Data Provider’ in 2014 as well as 2013. The award was accepted by Martin Cole, Managing Director of SIX Financial Information UK, at the event in London, on Thursday, 3 July 2014.
Winners of the Systems in the City Awards submit to a rigorous vetting process and are chosen each year by the financial institutions themselves. Following an open voting process, the short listed nominees are then assessed by an independent panel who meticulously check data and product references.
“Access to high quality data is of significant importance to the financial industry and over the years we have continuously improved our measures to deliver better and greater access to reference and market data for our clients. For that, we are extremely pleased and proud that the industry is recognizing our efforts” says Martin Cole.
SIX Financial Information has won a number of other awards over the past years such as the ‘Best Data Innovation’ award for FundsFast and ‘Best Data Feed Provider.’
