National Settlement Depository, Interfax join forces to develop a reference source of corporate data and pricing center

National Settlement Depository (NSD) and Interfax News Agency announce the launch of a new joint project to collate, verify and distribute corporate information.

The parties, in keeping with an agreement signed during the Exchange Forum on April 2, also intend to coordinate efforts to develop a system, for assessing the fair value of financial instruments (pricing center).

The main goal of collaboration between NSD and Interfax in the sphere of corporate information is to create a reference database of all available information about Russian issuers and their financial instruments.

The system will incorporate official data from the NSD; data that issuers disclose via Interfax as authorized stock market agent; and live updates that Interfax itself collates about issuers and securities.

The principles by which NSD and Interfax will create the corporate data system comply with the latest world practice for the development of information products in the Reference Data segment. It will guarantee the multi-tiered verification of data, speed at which information is updated, and convenient integration of the full database and its components with the clients information systems.

The projects first information product should be launched within a month.

The second field of cooperation between NSD and Interfax will be to develop an objective assessment of the fair value of financial instruments (pricing center), one which complies with Russian law and is recognized by financial market participants.

"The corporate information project with Interfax will replace disjointed and frequently conflicting data with a single reliable standardized source of information. As regards the development of the pricing center, we see that the creation of a national benchmark in the sphere of fair value for securities is an extremely sought-after and important undertaking for the market. Both projects will work objectively for the system-wide mitigation of risks related to the use of incorrect, untimely or incomplete information about Russian issuers and their securities," said Eddie Astanin, Chairman of the NSD Executive Board.

"The project between NSD and Interfax is intended to reduce cost for market participants to obtain accurate information that is convenient to use. They will receive data in a standard format, which can be customized for their needs," said Vladimir Gerasimov, First Deputy General Director of Interfax.
