LSEG Expands Real Time Data in Asia09.13.2018
London Stock Exchange Group today announced that it is expanding its Real Time Data service in Asia. From 1 October 2018, retail investors across Asia will be able to access LSEG’s market data via eight licensed distributors across the region. The move comes as a result of growing demand from Asian investors to access European capital markets data.
LSEG’s Real Time Data service provides investors with rich information on securities listed and traded on London Stock Exchange Group’s platforms, including London Stock Exchange, Borsa Italiana and Turquoise, a leading pan-European MTF. Investors in Asia will initially be able to access the data free of charge via the licensed distributors, for a period of 12 months.
Simon Youdan, Head of Business Development, Market Data, London Stock Exchange plc:
“Asia is a region of strategic importance for us and we are delighted to broaden our Real Time Data offering to retail investors from across the continent. We recognise that access to high quality data in real time is vital for those looking to gain exposure to global markets, and we look forward to supporting their trading activity by providing that information via a network of trusted distributors.”
