Instrument Mapping

The Problems

High-quality reference data for Security Master and EDM is the bedrock of financial operations, but when organization on-board reference data from multiple vendors, differences in symbology increase the workload of a bank’s reference data staff, undermining the ability to achieve regulatory compliance while decreasing the overall quality of information offered to investors.

Furthermore, since the European Commission’s 2012 ruling on Reuters Instrument Codes (RIC), organizations can reduce costs and vendor lock-in by availing of the Thomson Reuters Extended RIC License (ERL).
