The new interfaces, which bring the number of Asset Control’s off-the-shelf interfaces to more than 30, provide additional data coverage for the London Stock Exchange’s SEDOL Masterfile™, mortgage-backed securities with agency factors from eMBS, and municipal variable rate demand notes from Thomson. These interfaces converge through Asset Control’s industry-leading data enrichment and analysis process and integrate data from various sources to provide clients with a comprehensive, high quality set of information.
Phil Lynch, Asset Control’s president and chief executive officer, said, “Asset Control is committed to the continued expansion of its financial data coverage and support to provide clients with the breadth and depth of securities, market and reference information they need to respond faster to business demands while reducing implementation risk. These interfaces help financial institutions act quickly to create a complete financial data management process, using the level of detail required to be effective in dealing with specialized instruments and markets.”
Asset Control’s interface with the London Stock Exchange’s SEDOL Masterfile covers issuers, markets and securities. The feed provides the unique London Stock Exchange issued SEDOL global securities identifiers for approximately 2 million securities, as well as links to International Securities Identification Numbers (ISINs) and Market Identifier Codes (MICs). The feed also provides additional reference data with daily, weekly and monthly updates.
The new eMBS Mortgage-Backed Securities Online interface supports the eMBS’ bulk data feed of all outstanding mortgage securities, which provide participants of mortgage-backed securities trading with agency factors. The interface also supports post-processing files consisting of eMBS proprietary data as a result of interpretation, integration and normalization of agency distributions from Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae and Ginnie Mae agencies as applicable.
Asset Control’s Thomson Municipal Variable Rate Demand Notes (VRDC) interface supports Thomson’s Municipal Market Data feed and provides variable municipal rates via daily FTP transmissions for automatic processing. This enables users to receive automated intraday updates on the rapidly changing variable municipal market rates.
