programme that focuses on the internal Data Management operations of third-party disseminating suppliers, in order to guarantee correct and efficient reporting.
Louise Leishman, Director, Consultancy Services, says, "Information exchanges should ideally perform semi-annual audits on all their market distributors to verify compliance of the reporting with the terms stipulated in the Dissemination Agreements signed with the vendors. Most importantly, the audits will also ensure that the correct amount of payments received from clients via the vendors is passed to the Exchange in the form of royalties".
Time constraints and lack of internal resources mean that Exchanges do not always conduct data audits as often as is desired. DataContent provides a fully managed professional audit service on behalf of the Exchange that will highlight any errors in reporting, payment discrepancies and non-compliance with the Dissemination Agreement.
