"Through our ongoing investment, we can provide a broad range of content to these firms looking to access the MENA region."
London - Interactive Data Corporation has announced the availability of enhanced content for the Middle East and North Africa region via its Consolidated Feed.
With the June announcement by MSCI of its Annual Market Classification Review that upgraded the country status for Qatar and United Arab Emirates (UAE) from "frontier market" to "emerging market" classification, many international investment fund strategies will now require access to venues throughout the region.
Venues available through the Consolidated Feed now include Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Dubai, Dubai Commodities Exchange, Dubai Mercantile Exchange, Kuwait, NASDAQ Dubai and Qatar.
"The recent MSCI index upgrades firmly establish this region on the map for emerging market investors. As a result, a growing number of international investors will require high quality, cross-asset data for the various markets in the region," said Rob Lane, General Manager Real-Time Feeds and 7ticks, EMEA at Interactive Data. "Asia-, Europe- and US-based firms will also require reliable connectivity to these markets in the most cost-effective way. Through our ongoing investment, we can provide a broad range of content to these firms looking to access the MENA region and efficiently deliver it to them through the 7ticks network."
