AIM and Thomson Reuters upgrade DataScope solution

First Published 11th October 2016

Improved adapter brings configurable, transparent DataScope pricing and data solution to AIM Software buy-side clients.

Vienna and London - AIM Software and Thomson Reuters have released an upgraded and fully standardized adapter enabling buy-side firms to access DataScope Select pricing and reference data through AIM Software's enterprise data management (EDM) platform, GAIN. The solution allows investment managers, asset managers and asset servicing firms who use GAIN software to request and load Thomson Reuters pricing (including evaluated fixed income), reference data, and analytics on a highly customizable basis.

The jointly developed adapter is integrated as an optional component of GAIN, AIM Software's product. Clients order this interface directly from AIM Software and contract with Thomson Reuters for the DataScope Select pricing and data necessary to meet their portfolio management and compliance needs.

GAIN users can choose preconfigured data fields from DataScope Select, and then define, set and change their own rules and schedules, as well as monitor the status of all data requests in the system. The Thomson Reuters solution covers static data and prices for multiple instrument types, and handles end-of-day updates as well as intra-day requests, such as ad hoc instrument opening requests. The adapter now also integrates with Thomson Reuters web-service interface.

The special adapter offers GAIN users a broader range of integrated data sets (e.g. bonds, equities, FX rates, funds, futures and options and reference data, issuer data, legal entity data, corporate actions and regulatory data) via the DataScope Select evaluated pricing and reference delivery platform, covering over 2.5 million fixed income securities, derivatives, and bank loans. Moreover, customers can monitor these requests and filter them by status.
