Interactive Data Helps ETF.com Expand Its Services for Financial Planners and Investors

13 April 2009

Interactive Data Corporation (NYSE: IDC), a leading provider of financial market data, analytics and related solutions, today announced that its Managed Solutions business has developed a series of enhancements for ETF.com, a leading Web site that offers sophisticated research for exchange-traded funds (ETFs) listed on U.S. exchanges.

ETF.com leverages Interactive Data’s capabilities for displaying and analyzing data on ETFs, including profiles, charts, screeners, and analytics — providing Web site visitors with a comprehensive set of free research tools. Detailed quote information such as fundamentals, performance and market cap, along with rankings of the top performing ETFs by multiple categories, are also now available on the Web site. ETF.com is now also able to deliver side-by-side fund comparison tables and performance charts that can be measured against a benchmark.

“Interactive Data’s broad range of financial data delivery capabilities, along with its sophisticated technology platform and ability to build customized applications, enabled us to expand our offerings at ETF.com and assist financial planners and investors in more effectively obtaining critical ETF-related information,” said Ken Beller, CEO of ETF Media, Inc. “As ETFs continue to gain popularity among investors, it is important that we work with a trusted provider of content and related solutions to effectively enhance our Web site as we expand our services. Interactive Data met our design and functionality requirements for our Screener to create a unique search application while still getting to market quickly.

“We are pleased to work with ETF.com in expanding its powerful online financial application to include a variety of additional ETF content that is important to investors’ decision making processes,” said Luan Cox, general manager of Interactive Data Managed Solutions (Americas). “We continue to draw upon our technology infrastructure, comprehensive data and sophisticated tools to design cost-effective and customized solutions designed to help meet our customers’ needs.”

Interactive Data utilizes financial market data sources from across its organization and from other vendors to build and manage customized Web-based applications for financial customers such as global wealth managers, retail and investment banks, asset managers, online brokers and stock exchanges. These applications aggregate a tailored set of financial data and customer-proprietary content, and offer visually stunning features such as streaming data feeds, charts, sophisticated search functions and decision-support tools and analytics.
