Thomson Reuters has linked PORTIA, its investment accounting system, to DataScope Select, its global pricing and security reference data. The company says that the interconnectivity of these two offerings is designed to provide enterprise solutions to asset managers around the world. This initiative also represents another step in the integration of the former Thomson Financial and Reuters suites of products. Through the newly built interface, PORTIA clients will be able to use DataScope Select’s mission-critical pricing and reference data for portfolio management and valuation as well as investment accounting. The new link allows clients to add DataScope Select security data directly into PORTIA’s investment accounting platform.
