Interactive Data Corporation (NYSE: IDC), a leading provider of financial market data, analytics and related solutions, today announced that its Managed Solutions business has added approximately 40 exchanges to the coverage available via PrimeTerminal Professional Edition, its web-based market data terminal. This latest content substantially expands PrimeTerminal’s coverage of emerging markets.
The new exchanges added are located in South America, Africa, the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region, and include Columbia, Dubai, Kuwait, Mauritius, Pakistan and the Philippines. Further European exchanges have also been added, including Malta and Cyprus.
