Telekurs chosen as primary provider of real time market data by FinancialContent

Stamford, Conn. Following an extensive search for a supplier of high quality, global real time market data, FinancialContent, Inc. has chosen Telekurs Financial as its primary source of global streaming market data to power financial solutions for its Web, intranet, wireless and print customers.

FinancialContent chose MDFstream from Telekurs Financial because it met the company’s strict criteria for quality and reliability, as well as for Telekurs’ responsive customer service.

"Telekurs has consistently demonstrated that responsiveness to customer needs is the most important element of a long term, productive working relationship," said Wing Yu, Chief Executive Officer of FinancialContent, Inc. "In addition, the global scope of Telekurs’ product offering was well aligned with a major initiative to expand our coverage of European exchanges."

FinancialContent currently powers the online financial channels of numerous media and financial services firms, including CNET Networks, Genworth Financial, Hearst, Media General, Quepasa.com, and The E.W. Scripps Company. The company’s flagship product, Studio 3.5, is a content management platform that delivers stock quotes, charts, news, SEC filings, and over 75 different datasets.

"Because FinancialContent’s aggregated data services are used by leading web sites, on corporate intranets and in other mission-critical situations, they need to provide ‘bullet-proof’ delivery," said Barry Raskin, president of Telekurs (USA) Inc. "We worked closely with FinancialContent as they formulated their needs and put us through our paces to ensure quality and reliability. And at the end of that process, we are obviously pleased to have been named their primary provider of real-time market data. We look forward to this long-term partnership with one of the industry’s fastest growing financial data distributors."

Each month, FinancialContent’s 400+ deployments generate nearly 100 million page views covering more than 200 equity data points and syndicating news from more than 100 news providers.
