"We jumped at the opportunity to better the quality of our coverage of French and Arabic speaking countries."

London - Exchange Data International (EDI), the provider of Reference and Corporate Actions data, has announced the opening of a Moroccan office in Agadir.

EDI appointed Said Benbihi, a Masters graduate in Economics & Finance Translation, to run the Agadir office. Prior to this appointment, Said worked as a data analyst at EDI's headquarters in London and then as a North Africa & Middle East Research Analyst for Euromonitor, before moving back to Morocco.

"The success of our self-sourced UK corporate actions service showed us the positive impact of aggregating the data ourselves on both data quality and query handling. We therefore jumped at the opportunity to better the quality of our coverage of French and Arabic speaking countries." says Jonathan Bloch, CEO, Exchange Data International.

EDI's Moroccan office will also provide translation and other services to the local securities markets.
