UnaVista Data Solutions
Reference data makes up 40% of all financial information, so it’s essential that you have a reliable source for it. UnaVista can consolidate all your sources of reference data and create golden copies of reference data – increasing your STP rates and reducing risk. And because the London Stock Exchange’s SEDOL Masterfile is part of UnaVista, you’ll be matching your reference data directly with the source. You also won’t have to update the information yourself – UnaVista does it for you.
Below are the reference data solutions available on UnaVista:
UnaVista FundsData acts as a central information hub for all UK fund corporate action and standing data, as well as offering access to data on a number of European and off-shore funds. The service acts as a distribution channel for fund reference data, addressing the fragmented and inefficient workflow processes currently associated with disseminating this information by providing a cost efficient, lower risk communication channel.
Entity Relationship Data
Companies can receive FactSet’s issue-to-issuer linkage data and parent-subsidiary relationship data via the UnaVista platform. UnaVista will reconcile the data against the Exchange’s SEDOL Masterfile and the firm’s own systems. Reduce your firm’s risk exposure without the need for manual checks. As UnaVista is a web-hosted system, firms don’t have to invest in expensive new hardware to run it, they also benefit from the reassurance of knowing that their data is safe, because it is securely hosted at the Exchange.
