TCAM is an independent market data specialist, which helps financial and energy trading firms to streamline their market data environment. We have specialized in market data because it is an essential, yet expensive asset and therefore requires considerable attention. In fact, research shows that on average, market data costs represent one-third of trading floors’ operational costs. Although many firms recognize market data being “important”, many of them find it difficult to manage market data professionally due to its complexity.
TCAM’s expertise with respect to market data includes: creating market data transparency (inventory, contracts), requirements analysis, market data health checks, market data optimisations, market data compliance monitoring, market data training, selections (e.g. data feeds, market data distribution systems (e.g. Reuters RMDS, Wombat)), specialist procurement support (e.g. contract negotiations), interim market data management, setting up market data management departments including workflow, recruitment & training of market data specialists.
