MARKET & FINANCIAL DATA SOLUTION

With all Web Financial Group Tech solutions, we aim to provide clients with a unique Market Data as a Service (MDaaS) solution to support the evolving needs of their clientbase. Our Market & Financial Data Solution (MFDS) is an independent, scalable and flexible multi-vendor and multi-asset platform, providing best-in-class integration across many different data sources.

MFDS is integrated with all major data vendors, regional providers, exchanges and many other sources. We like to say, if the data is available then it can be integrated into MFDS..

Empower

By remaining data vendor neutral, we’re enabling our clients to use critical data from multiple sources in our single web-based solution. With this model, our clients can also easily switch between data vendors without affecting their clients’ experience.

Best Solutions

With MFDS, we’re able to delivera single platform, helping clients more easily navigate the complex array of data providerstoday. In fact, this empowers our clients, giving them negotiating power with data vendors. Financial instituions leverage MFDS to provide their clients with a wide range of intelligent search capabilities, comparison and analytical tools, alongsideintegrated customer and third party data.

Cross Code + Cross Display

MFDS is able to redistribute all data in any required format (HTML 5, CSV, XML, JSON, Fix, F2, Openmama, etc.) and for any kind of multi-channel device (website, tablets, smartphones, TV, watches, IoT,...). We help our customers reach their clients whenever and wherever they are. Finally, on the distribution level, MFDS is able to redistribute all data in any required format (HTML 5, CSV, XML, JSON, Fix, F2, Openmama, etc.) and for any kind of multi-channel device (website, tablets, smartphones, TV, watches, IoT, etc.).

Empower

Based on MFDS, Web Financial Group's Tech group is fully prepared to operate a single platform rationalising the current very much complex multi-providers and multi-asset banks´situation, covering any type of asset coming from every single data source existing in the market. In fact, this empowers our clients giving them huge negotiating power with data vendors.
