Thomson Reuters Selects SimCorp Dimension Software Platform
May 21 15
SimCorp and Thomson Reuters announced the installation of a dedicated adapter enabling portfolio managers to access DataScope Select pricing and reference data through the SimCorp Dimension software platform. The innovative joint permits investment, asset and fund managers who use SimCorp Dimension software to request and load DataScope Select evaluated fixed income data and analytics on a highly customizable basis. The jointly developed adapter is being integrated as an optional component of the latest SimCorp Dimension software release. Clients order directly from SimCorp to have this interface installed, and in turn, they contract with Thomson Reuters for those DataScope Select pricing and data fields required to meet their portfolio management and compliance needs. With the new adapter, SimCorp Dimension users can take preconfigured data fields from DataScope Select, 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 new pricing instrument additions. The specially designed adapter offers SimCorp users a much broader range of integrated data sets (e.g. bonds reference data) via the DataScope Select evaluated pricing and reference delivery platform, covering over 2.5 million fixed income securities, derivatives, and bank loans. SimCorp also provides training during the implementation of the interface, along with ongoing assistance to SimCorp Dimension customers. Moreover, they benefit from a key DataScope function: an audit trail displaying the latest update, status and time of each pricing and reference request. Customers can monitor these requests and filter them by status.
