Our award winning corporate actions service gathers information from around the world covering a large and comprehensive database of global securities.
The annual awards ceremony, held in New York City, recognizes industry excellence in market and reference data as well as enterprise data management. Following reader nominations for several awards in market and reference data categories, Inside Reference Data subscribers voted SIX Financial Information as the “Best Corporate Actions Data Provider” for a 7th time running. The award was accepted by John McManus, SIX Executive Director & Head of Sales the Americas, UK & Ireland, at the Incisive Media Awards Ceremony, which took place in New York on Wednesday, 18 May 2016. “We are delighted to be recognized once again for this award. I would like to thank all of our customers and partners for their support and recognition of our excellence in the global corporate actions space,” said McManus.
Winners of the Inside Market Data and Inside Reference Data awards are chosen each year by financial institution professionals. Each voter may choose a winner according to his or her individual criteria. For corporate actions, these criteria would include timeliness, flexible delivery format, breadth of instrument coverage, types of corporate actions and global reach. SIX Financial Information has often been credited with superiority in all of these areas, a fact that reflects hard work and a program of continuous improvement.
SIX’s corporate actions can be accessed via a number of delivery services, most notably via the VDF Event Diary. The web-based solution allows back office professionals to quickly and effectively track and analyze corporate action related events.
