Interactive Data worked closely with Pershing to develop and design a customized Web-based portal that is accessible via NetX360. The portal will provide Pershingâs customers with access to a wide range of real-time market data and tools as well as analysis on companies and events to help them gain perspective on key trends shaping the capital markets.
Pershingâs customers will also have the ability to access Interactive Dataâs Market-QSM through NetX360. Market-Q is a flexible, browser-based, streaming real-time market data desktop application that offers a broad array of financial information and content, including global real-time market data, advanced charting capabilities, Dow Jones Newswires news and analysis, and commentary on companies and market events. Market-Qâs streaming capabilities are accessible from Web browsers, providing investment professionals and RIAs with the flexibility to utilize its capabilities regardless of their location.
Pershing plans to implement the Web-based portal and Market-Q offering as fully-hosted solutions, which will help to eliminate the need for additional onsite technology infrastructure costs associated with servers, circuits and routers.
âWe are very pleased that Pershing has chosen Interactive Data to provide Market-Q and our custom designed portal to their customers via NetX360,â said Ray DâArcy, president and chief executive officer, Interactive Data Corporation. âThe combination of real-time market data and our powerful analytical tools can result in a unique online experience for investment professionals and RIAs. The fully-hosted solution can also help Pershingâs customers control market data costs and free-up resources so they can focus on other critical aspects of growing their businesses.â
Since 2003, Interactive Data has provided Pershing with PlusFeedSM its consolidated, low latency digital datafeed that delivers data on over 6 million instruments from more than 450 global sources. PlusFeed includes multi-asset class instrument coverage and extensive Level 2 data. PlusFeed helps to power the NetX360 platform and helps complement the front-end applications of Interactive Dataâs Web-based portal and Market-Q offerings.
