Reuters and interdealer broker Icap have extended an existing agreement to make a broader range of Icap data available to Reuters’ clients. Under the agreement, Reuters can now offer additional Icap data covering interest rate and currency swaps, FX option volatilities (caps and floors), money market instruments, fixed income assets, futures, commodities, equity derivatives and broker history data. The additional information will be available to clients of Reuters 3000Xtra and Reuters BridgeStation.
Julie Holland, managing director, Reuters Treasury Services, says, “As an acknowledged leading source of broker data, it makes perfect sense to extend our longstanding relationship with Icap. This agreement supports Reuters’ aim to bring financial market professionals best-in-class data in addition to analysis and transaction capabilities.”
John Barber, global head of information services at Icap, adds, “Icap is committed to supplying first class broker data and we believe that the extended range of data that Reuters has purchased will add significant value for its information-hungry customers.”
