State Street Global Markets has signed up to use the Reuters' historical and reference data service, DataScope, to support its fixed income trading business.
Reuters says DataScope offers comprehensive equities, fixed income, money markets, futures data with a choice of delivery options from Web-based to an on-site relational database.
The service currently features end-of-day equity prices and corporate actions from over 140 exchanges worldwide, spot rates on 175 currencies, cross and forward rates, a range of global cross reference information and historical time-series data from 1976.
Following the integration of Bridge, DataScope also provides over 1.9 million fixed income instruments - both pricing and terms and conditions. Reuters has recently engaged in a hiring spree at DataScope as it bids to take on rival suppliers in fixed income data delivery.
