GFI Market Data, a division of GFI Group Inc., and GlobalView Software Inc., a leading provider of energy data management solutions, announced today they have entered into a new strategic partnership. This new initiative will offer GFIâs energy data via the MarketView product suite.
âWe have partnered with GFI Market Data because they are the leading provider of data in a variety of energy and commodity markets across North America and Europeâ, said Eric Fishhaut, Senior Vice President of Technology Strategy of GlobalView. âGlobalView will be able to deliver the content from GFI as part of our award-winning MarketView Solution. With the addition of GFI Market Data content, we will be able to expand our suite of energy data therefore supplying our customers with the most complete and valuable pricing informationâ, added Mr. Fishhaut.
Philip Winstone, Global Head of Sales at GFI Market Data, stated: âWe are very pleased with our partnership with GlobalView. Having our data available through their infrastructure and platforms is an exciting opportunity for us to continue to grow our business through partnership channels.â
Mr. Winstone added: âThe data is sourced directly from GFIâs electronic trading platforms for the energy markets, EnergyMatch EuropeÂ® and EnergyMatchÂ®, and is therefore comprised of executable bid/offers and executed trade data, rather than indicative or consensus pricing. Coupled with GFIâs strength as a broker in these markets, this makes our data offering one of the most compelling available.â
EnergyMatchÂ® and EnergyMatch EuropeÂ® bring together buyers and sellers of derivative and physical commodities contracts in an electronic OTC energy marketplace that provides market participants with multiple clearing options in an open access web based platform.
