Linedata Services, a leading provider of software and services to the global financial services marketplace, today announced the availability of corporate actions data from FT Interactive Data, an Interactive Data (NYSE: IDC) business and a leading supplier of financial information to global markets. This completes the offering and enables customers of Linedata's Icon solution to choose a wide range of FT Interactive Data's content, covering reference data, pricing, evaluations, FX rates and indices data.

The Accredited Data Vendor Partner Programme for Icon, Linedata's complete back-office fund management and administration solution, was launched a year ago. The programme provides jointly developed, seamless interfaces to data vendors as proven, 'out of the box' solutions that can be deployed quickly and easily, requiring no additional configuration.

Paul Westgate, Icon Product Manager for Linedata Services, commented, "Our customers now have the choice of full market data interfaces to two of the leading vendors, and this will increase to three by the end of the year. The project to widen the selection of data feeds available to our customers continues to be very successful and we are working with additional data vendors to increase this choice even further."

The broad range of market data available from FT Interactive Data is another successful addition to Linedata Services' Accredited Data Vendor Partner Programme, designed to offer existing and future Icon customers a greater choice of data vendors and simple, fast access to multiple data feeds.
