How You Will Benefit

Reference Data: Instant and Global Distribution

Distribution of high quality reference data to multiple market participants can be costly and cumbersome. Issuers contend with many different interfaces and many data models, incurring high overheads.

CONNEXOR Distribution does things differently. Reference data is captured electronically in a standardized way, directly at source, even for instruments listed on other exchanges, OTC or private placements. This allows for straight through processing, making data available to any number of data consumers in a standard format, without any changes to content.

The process is fast, efficient and eliminates repeated efforts across different interfaces and data models: that’s the CONNEXOR Distribution difference.

Numerous market participants such as financial institutions, data vendors, investors, technology partners, public authorities and other reference data users are already connected to the CONNEXOR infrastructure and further market participants can be connected.

About This Service

A financial instrument passes through several phases in its lifecycle, each with different needs and obligations for managing its reference data. Against a backdrop of increasing regulatory requirements, compliance with all of these obligations can prove difficult for market participants. Fortunately, CONNEXOR provides the services that help the market overcome these challenges.

Step One: Instrument Issuance

CONNEXOR Numbering is the central reservation tool for Swiss and international security identification numbers (ISINs) and automates the assignment of valor numbers to accelerate the subscription process – especially for mass reservations.

CONNEXOR Listing then enables instruments to be immediately admitted to trading, while CONNEXOR Distribution allows non-listed instrument data to be captured and distributed in a standardized manner.

Step Two: Instrument Maintenance

CONNEXOR Events simplifies the timely transmission of financial instrument event data to fulfil reporting obligations. Issuers can also use this service to transmit payment instructions for listed and unlisted instruments.

CONNEXOR Reporting is the official reporting platform for transmitting corporate action data. It offers issuers one-step compliance with stock exchange law in a simple, reliable and timely manner, enabling them to transmit information to the market simultaneously.

Step Three: Use of Data

CONNEXOR Terms displays simple and complex financial instruments in digitized form and originating from the issuer. The service combines data depth and quality with a standardized structure, enabling easy further processing and use of reference data.

CONNEXOR API: Get Your Reference Data ISIN by ISIN

Our “easy-to-connect” CONNEXOR API allows our structured product reference data consumers to download data ISIN by ISIN – just like you would with a shopping cart! So clients only pay for what they actively request. In addition to the native data format CONNEXOR-XML, other popular formats such as json, csv or Excel are also enabled. The offering covers additional services, such as notifications about data updates, issuer reporting on usage as well as integrating key figures. 

This offering benefits all our customers but especially those with individual requests for better management of their structured products. This service is offered by CONNEXOR through the interface of our cooperation partner Avaloq.

The one-time registration is quick and easy via an online contract, and the data can be obtained immediately after a brief contract review.
