London - 20 May 2013

SuperDerivatives, a world leader in multi-asset real-time market data, analytics and derivatives technology including front office, portfolio revaluation and trade execution, has announced an agreement to provide real-time market data, news and analysis to Gilliat Financial Solutions.

The addition of SuperDerivatives’ cloud-based platform will allow Gilliat Financial Solutions to access real-time data across multiple asset classes, including FX, commodities, interest rates, credit and equities, as well as third party content and applications from more than 200 third-party providers via the DGX app store.

Launched in December 2012, DGX provides the widest coverage of cash and derivatives products across multiple asset classes and is entirely free-text based, driven by a very powerful search engine. Features include advanced chat facilities, live news and commentary from multiple sources, twitter integration and live business television channels.

Commenting on the reasons for selecting DGX, Adrian Neave, Managing Director of Gilliat Financial Solutions, explained, “Controlling cost and maximising return on investment for market data are real issues for institutions in this environment. As a firm, we carefully considered and tested the different solutions currently on the market, and came to the conclusion that DGX, with SuperDerivatives’ market data, depth of coverage and innovative functionality, was the best for our business.”

Tania Husler, Regional Sales Manager at SuperDerivatives, said, “Institutions are looking for innovative market data solutions which are personalised, mobile and accessible, all at a sensible price. It is evident that firms are beginning to appreciate what a more open web-based, app enabled environment can deliver, and the interest we have seen in DGX has exceeded all expectations to date.”
