New securities are admitted to trading on the London Stock Exchange every week. It is critical that these new securities are monitored by all market participants to create an efficient and liquid market. Similarly, existing securities on the Exchange are amended daily, typically as a result of corporate actions. If these amendments are not tracked, the most likely result is trade failures, which are expensive and time consuming to correct. Failed trades due to incorrect reference data are still common occurrences with serious repercussions. Datasync has been designed for both market participants and vendors to minimise this risk.

Datasync Email Service

Hourly from 10:00 to18:00, subscribers receive an email detailing updates to the trading system, which are effective the following trading day. Each email contains a user-friendly report in an Excel format to facilitate the transfer of data into other software applications. An example of an amendment to a particular security can be seen below.

Failed trades due to incorrect reference data are still common occurrences. Datasync has been designed to help you eradicate this risk.
