Xymbology - The symbology service of choice

Euromoney TRADEDATA is an independent business with an industry neutral position, a strength that encourages multi-vendor participation in this specialist area of symbol mapping.  This makes our Xymbology service the leading smart data feed of instrument data enriched with root or trade series level symbols, mapped to key market data and back office vendor identifiers.

Xymbology feeds allow orders from client platforms to be instantly mapped into clearing and settlement systems.  Open positions can be dynamically tracked for clients by using the same symbology to retrieve real-time prices from market data connections and produce reports with enhanced attribute information. 

Xymbology - Resolving symbols, enabling choice

Unrestricted choice of vendor platform

Since the introduction of Xymbology in 2004, we have worked with our clients and alliance partners to build both choice and competition in services offered to the buy side community.  This has enabled sell side firms to improve the quality of service to their clients through unrestricted support of vendor platforms.

In addition, the application of cross-vendor symbology mapping has improved middle office risk and portfolio management and for the back office it has enhanced efficiencies in straight-through-processing for clearing and settlement.

Clients that benefit from our services include global banks, dedicated derivative houses, exchanges, independent software vendors, regulators and publishers with data distributed to the EMEA, Americas and APAC geographic areas.

Benefits include:

  • Product choices for end-users can be open and not restricted by legacy
  • Product switching can be more readily justified and implemented more easily 
  • Sell side gains competitive advantage to win new business by being vendor neutral 
  • Compelling vendors to win business on product merit in a more competitive environment
  • Delivering sell side improvements to operational efficiency and reduces processing costs
  • Raising quality of service offerings and a wider choice for the buy side
  • Ready price retrieval from alternative market data vendors increasing competition
  • Lower exception reporting for the industry and improved risk management.
