Depending on the team’s availability and the entity’s complexity, it can take one or two weeks.

Those responsible for various Market Data activities. Each entity has a different management, however, those people who have decision-making power on issues of service contracting, managing user requests, reconciling invoices, are the ones who participate in the creation of strategies and management in the field of market data.

The estimated timeframe for the assessment and delivery of the report is one month, but it may vary depending on the availability of your team.

As your team prefers. They can be face-to-face or on-line.

As the service works as a thermometer of the entity’s current situation, it is not necessary to collect any specific information, however, you will be asked about issues related to, for example, market data contracts, strategies, procedures, among others.

If, in addition to identifying the improvements, the entity is interested in us indicating the most efficient way to carry them out, according to our know-how, we can perfectly include this point in the service or conduct it when we obtain the first conclusions. Since our recommendations are always based on the specific situation of the entity and not on standard recommendations.

We consider that the entity must know what kind of improvements it wants to implement. Some entities will prefer to carry them out internally and others will prefer that we help them to be implemented instead. Por eso es un servicio que ofrecemos a medida de lo que nuestros clientes nos solicitan.

Market Data Transparency

With MDT service the client gains transparency in market data costs, through reports and a dynamic dashboard that will facilitate management and decision making.

The MDT service allows to reduce resources because the client will outsource the market data cost control to an expert team that will help them to rationalize costs obtaining:

  • More accurate control
  • Transparency regarding costs: who has what, costs per person, area, department, per vendor, per service, etc.
  • Improvement against audits avoiding possible fines or penalties
  • Anticipation of contract expiration, avoiding unnecessary renewals
  • Identification of duplicity and inefficiency in processes and contracted products

It increases transparency because it provides the entity with information at all times about its market data costs, knowing the costs on different levels such as users, suppliers, departments, etc.

To obtain this transparency, the client needs to provide at least the information on the market data invoices, the hierarchical structure with a minimum level of area/department and identification of the products that each area has contracted. Additional information may be requested depending on the needs of each entity.

They facilitate the elaboration of budgets because they provide accuracy regarding market data service costs as well as automation. By being transparent about everything that is contracted and how much each user, area and department costs, the entity finds it easier to prepare more assertive budgets.

Transparency allows the client to know exactly which products they has contracted and facilitates the reporting to the stock exchanges since with a few clicks they will be able to obtain the necessary information to complete it and be compliant. Similarly, at the time of an audit, the information is centralized, providing security for both the client and the auditor.

Another advantage is that it is possible to know if you are really using the products you have contracted in the right way, depending on the contract with the vendor. The control of this type of information is not so easy for the entity and the control automation prevents the entity from suffering sanctions for the incorrect use of the data by vendors or data suppliers.

The service allows to record and track market data costs from the date the client needs it, providing a control of everything that was done for each user, product and existing service. The accuracy of the service will depend on the communication of the actions carried out by the entity for each invoice / product / user / department.

As MedySIF’s services are tailor-made for each client, the cost of the service will be defined once an initial diagnosis has been made. However, it is important to note that it will be based on an initial set up followed by a monthly cost that will be calculated based on the number of market data invoices.

Our experience allows us to say that this service fits all types of entities, especially a small entity. In the projects led by us we identified that a small entity suffers from not always having a dedicated team to do the market data cost control management. However, it has to deal with the complexity that this control implies, taking into account the importance of these costs.

The service allows to rationalize costs of information sources and, above all, to identify optimization opportunities, such as cost duplication, process inefficiency. The reduction will depend on the specifics of each entity.

Each entity has a different management, however, generally those who participate in making and managing the market data strategies are those with decision-making power in matters of service contracting, managing of user requests and inovoice reconciliation. The need for investment of resources will depend on the peculiarities of each entity.

The service provides reports as listed below:

  • Monthly cost per area
  • Monthly cost per vendor (General)
  • Monthly cost per vendor and product
  • Report for filings to stock exchanges
  • Among others.

However, it is important to bear in mind that the cost will be based on an initial set up, a software license and a regular fee to be defined according to the service contracted. The cost of the license will also depend on the optional items that are contracted to handle specifics of the process such as integrations with ERP systems, massive load of information, human resources management among others.

    • Bills from these vendors.
    • Entity’s organizational structure.
    • Among others that will be defined according to the specific client project.
