ValueLink Information Services Limited has launched a new security masterfile (SMF) service, providing validated London Stock Exchange reference data.
The SMF data is sourced from the London Stock Exchange (LSE) directly via ValueLInk's current London Market Information Link data feed, implemented in 2002. It provides over 60 data items on over 400,000 securities listed on the LSE’s domestic and international markets under UK ISIN and Sedol codes.
The new master database expands and complements ValueLink’s core securities pricing, capital events, dividends and NAV services.
The vendor describes the release as part of an ongoing European development programme designed to help City firms to centralise and consolidate their data providers and reduce overall data processing costs.
