TFG Fund Services are the first client to access Xtrakter’s reference data product, XREF. The solution offers a source of static data on over 300,000 different fixed-income securities.
Clients now receive data and information on any of these securities (fixed rate bonds, floating rate notes (FRNs), convertibles, government bonds, bills and euro medium-term notes) in a tailor-made fashion.
By using XREF, clients select only the data and information required, such as interest payment details, redemption features (call, put, etc), conversion terms, syndicate member names and agents among others, all of which assist clients in managing their bond portfolios. Furthermore, enhanced search capabilities now enable clients to flag up securities information by debt instrument type, regulatory regime (e.g. REG S, Rule 144a), collateral-eligibility classification and specific features, such as sukuk and limited recourse debt.
