GoldenSource, the leading independent provider of Enterprise Data Management (EDM) and Master Data Management (MDM) solutions for the securities and investment management industry, has integrated with ICE Data Services’ APEX delivery platform. This builds on GoldenSource’s 10-year history of allowing mutual clients to gain access to Intercontinental Exchange’s ICE Data Services, which now includes Interactive Data’s content.
ICE Data Services’ APEX platform delivers award-winning pricing and reference data for use with trade setup, pre-trade compliance, trade settlement and reporting, risk management, compliance and audit activities. The integration with the APEX delivery platform enables a scalable way for GoldenSource users to manage their data operations as well as helping them manage risk exposure and support regulatory requirement workstreams.
“Our integration with the APEX delivery platform to support the Global Security Master and Global Pricing Master is part of our commitment to provide a dynamic offering designed to meet a wide variety of needs,” said Volker Lainer, VP Product Management and Regulatory Affairs at GoldenSource. “We view APEX as next-generation technology for data delivery platforms and we believe the integration with the APEX delivery platform can offer significant benefits to GoldenSource’s global client base.”
Hubert Holmes, Senior Director, Reference Data at ICE Data Services, said: “APEX provides an efficient way to access data that is critical for informing trading and risk management decisions. This integration allows us to extend the reach of our scalable, end-to-end platform and offer our pricing and reference data to a broader base of customers.”
GoldenSource clients who currently use ICE Data Services’ feeds will continue to have access through APEX, which in addition to reference data on over 10 million global securities, also offers entity and pricing data for many use cases including MIFID II transaction reporting. With the addition of the APEX platform, GoldenSource offers a comprehensive experience of EDM and MDM platform providers. APEX was launched by Interactive Data, which was acquired by Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) in December 2015.
