Activ Financial, a global provider of real-time, multi-asset financial market data and solutions, today announced the expansion of its global data feed coverage with the addition of more than 10 new markets across Asia.
The expansion of Asian market coverage reinforces Activ's position in the industry as a global, independent provider of market data. Activ's global network now spans over 200 equity and derivatives exchanges worldwide and is expected to continue to grow throughout the year.
The announcement of Activ's expanded Asian market coverage comes as rising market volumes across the region continue to attract global investors – particularly to Asia's emerging markets.
Activ's new Asia market coverage includes Bursa Malaysia, Indonesia Stock Exchange, Philippine Stock Exchange, Stock Exchange of Thailand and Thailand Futures Exchange. Activ will also be adding coverage from Shanghai Stock Exchange, National Stock Exchange of India, Bombay Exchange and Taiwan Futures Exchange by the end of the year.
"Our customers are increasingly moving toward multi-asset, global trading strategies that incorporate data from countries across Asia, and Activ is committed to expanding our offering to reflect market need," said Frank Piasecki, President of Activ Financial. "We see a unique opportunity for Activ to continue to grow as we help enterprises that are taking a fresh look at their market data infrastructure efficiency. Our increasingly global offering positions us strongly as a market data solution that now includes a wider breadth of coverage in Asia."
