Brokers, institutions, exchanges and clearing and settlement houses leverage the Radianz Cloud to access thousands of applications and services to run their operations. 

TP ICAP’s data and analytics division, Parameta Solutions, has announced that BT Radianz Cloud is now carrying SURFIX feed, a service that enables customers to receive all TP ICAP market data in real time via a single, consolidated API feed rather than through multiple different feeds.

The data encompasses the Tullet Prebon, ICAP and PVM brands and includes data sets covering Rates, FX, Money Markets, Energy & Commodities and other high quality, scarce market data.

Cloud-based data solutions continue to grow

Jonathan Cooper, Chief Revenue Officer at Parameta Solutions, commented: “As cloud-delivery of data solutions continues to grow, we’re constantly evolving to meet our clients’ needs. With so many existing and potential clients already on BT Radianz Cloud, it was a natural choice to offer this secure and resilient route to access SURFIX feed and drive growth.”

Phil Swindle, Director, Radianz, BT, added: “We’re delighted to welcome Parameta Solutions’ Surfix feed to BT Radianz Cloud. This is a great example of how BT works with innovative providers. It gives members access to the best market data and services, enabling them to make faster and better-informed decisions. For providers, it accelerates growth while satisfying client demand for security and resilience.”

Brokers, institutions, exchanges and clearing and settlement houses leverage the Radianz Cloud to access thousands of applications and services to run their operations.

Parameta’s SURFIX is now available for community members, who can easily consume the consolidated TP ICAP market data feed, with 24/7 Radianz support.

    FCA wants to tackle lack of competition in wholesale data market

    “Complex licensing practices by MDVs and trade data providers who deliver their data through MDVs increase costs for data users. Many Market Data Vendor (MDV) users have to hold licences both from the data generator (such as a trading venue) and from the MDV through which they access data. We have seen an increasing proliferation of licences for similar data types and different use cases. Complexity also drives additional costs for data users, such as operating a compliance team.”
