LiquidMetrix to Partner with Dow Jones to Deliver Enhanced Market Surveillance Solution10.10.2016 By John D'Antona Editor, Traders Magazine
BUSINESS WIRE – NEW YORK & LONDON- Strategic Insight (SI), the data and business intelligence company for the global asset management community, today announced a new partnership with Dow Jones. The partnership enables LiquidMetrix, the industry leading solution for Best Execution, Transaction Cost Analysis (TCA) and surveillance services to provide clients with market surveillance services powered by Dow Jones Newswires.
LiquidMetrix will use comprehensive global news produced by Dow Jones Newswires to provide effective market abuse detection monitoring.
With increasing demands for surveillance, heightened by the new Market Abuse Regulation in Europe and changes in surveillance requirements in other regions, this is a significant initiative, complementing the global TCA services already offered by LiquidMetrix and expanding the applicability of the LiquidMetrix Surveillance product to a global audience.
“We are very happy to be partnering with Dow Jones on this enhancement to our service as this gives LiquidMetrix access to global news events from a leading provider,” said Sabine Toulson, Managing Director of LiquidMetrix, Strategic Insight. “This new data provides a great addition to our existing surveillance service, offering global coverage in market abuse detection in financial markets in an affordable user centric service designed for brokers and asset managers.”
Joe Cappitelli, General Manager of Newswires at Dow Jones said, “Dow Jones Newswires offer unrivaled speed, accuracy and depth to help investors navigate ever-more complex markets. This is a timely and important service given that clients’ need for market surveillance is increasing.”
