Ref-Data.com is an instance of 1View software that contains over 10 million Companies and 30 million Financial Instruments that are sourced from hundreds of diverse and respected organisations (some are subject to licence).
With many applications in any global process, most organisations will be maintaining counterparty or instrument data independently in each, so the overall running and change costs will be very expensive. Ref-Data.com solves this in an entirely new and very simple way.
Using Collaborative Data Management (CDM) methods, Ref-data.com can inform each application individually of the reference data updates necessary to achieve consistency. Using it every day will efficiently maintain local data accuracy and confirm the local data is consistent with any 'golden copy'.
Simply get each processing system owner to upload any copy of Reference data (e.g. Clients and/or Instruments) from the local system and they will receive personalised details on all the updates needed using designated and preferred sources.
This is a confidential and secure service that is open to both consumer firms and vendors and which does not share data with others unless authorised or licenced to do so.
Ref-Data.com contains an extensive range of data on over 30 million Financial Instruments (see Data Sources page for current list of sources). An extensive range of fields already exists e.g. proprietary identifiers, classifications, ratings, end-of-day prices, etc. Extensive cross-reference information is maintained, including any internal proprietary identifiers. The set of fields contained is automatically extended whenever a new input provides further information.
Ref-Data.com contains an extensive range of data on over 10 million Legal Entities (see Data Sources page for current list).An extensive range of fields exists for each company, including Registration identifiers and LEI, and the links to related financial instruments. Ownership structures are available though Vendor supplied data. The range of elements is automatically extended whenever a new input provides further information.
Uploading transactional data in the form of extracts from processing applications in any process life-cycle will automatically reconcile and condense the data into a record for each transaction with information from each supplying application. Any data mismatch or exception is highlighted for 'once-off' repair e.g. differing amounts or codes, unmatched lines, etc.
Any other hierarchical data can be added, providing data quality control for any business context e.g. currency codes, country codes, holiday dates etc.
