AP3, one of five buffer funds within the Swedish national pension system, will use SuperDerivatives’ market data, DataX, for analysis and valuation of its investments.
AP3 has two roles in the pension system: serving as a buffer when inflows and outflows cause an imbalance in the system; and promoting the overall financial stability of the system. Its aim is to manage the fund capital so as to deliver strong investment returns at a low level of risk. AP3 manages a diversified global portfolio of listed equities, fixed income assets and alternative investments.
DataX provides market data for cash and derivative products for currencies, equities, interest rates, credit, energy, commodities and bonds. It is available on a live or historical basis. The live data is also available via SuperDerivatives real-time data feed service DGX Direct.
Mattias Bylund, chief risk officer at AP3, says, “As a national pension fund tasked with generating investment returns, accurate market data is vital to making informed trading decisions and precise valuation.”
