Data is sourced from stock exchanges, central banks, ministries of finance, paying and transfer agents.

“We are delighted to be working with EDI in order to expand the market and corporate actions data available to our clients through AQMetrics software,” said Geraldine Gibson, CEO at AQMetrics.  “Recently we have seen increased client demand for consolidated market and corporate actions data from multiple market data sources; and as a result we recognise the need provide our clients with even more choice from our ‘One Stop’ shop.
