Telekurs (USA) Inc. and XcitekSolutionsPlus are pleased to announce the expansion of their five-year relationship through the integration of the Telekurs Valordata feed (VDF). The ISO 15022 format of this global corporate actions data feed will be featured at the Sibos 2004 conference in Atlanta, GA from October 11-15.
XSP™, the XcitekSolutionsPlus software solution for corporate actions processing, captures and sanitizes Telekurs corporate actions data to initiate the downstream process. Through XSP’s robust workflow tools, tasks are automatically routed to designated parties to handle the required action associated with the corporate event.
This initiative confirms the increased market activity and continued interest in the realization of straight through processing that is enhanced by the utilization of the ISO 15022 standard.
Barry Raskin, president of Telekurs (USA), said: "This testing reflects our commitment to the ISO 15022 standard. Telekurs is an early adopter via SWIFT and is actively promoting standardization for corporate actions and reference data. Our existing relationship with XcitekSolutionsPlus offers a reliable, fully automated method of processing corporate actions data as defined by ISO 15022."

VDF is regarded as an especially rich source of domestic and international securities master data and corporate actions information, providing information and valuation prices for more than 2 million financial instruments. Telekurs VDF data is sourced and analyzed at the company’s data centers in 14 countries to provide unrivaled depth and coverage of global markets.
Brendan P. Farrell, Jr., Managing Partner of XcitekSolutionsPlus said: "Telekurs delivers its data fully structured, encoded and ISO 15022 compliant and XSP offers unparalleled corporate actions processing functionality.
