Brussels/London/Toronto, 16 October 2017 - Euroclear is launching a new business line, Euroclear Information Solutions (EIS). With an ambition to enable greater efficiencies in global fixed income markets, the open architecture platform will provide data solutions that increase transparency and promote liquidity.
As a neutral infrastructure with a track record of providing high quality, robust post-trade services to the world’s leading financial institutions, Euroclear is uniquely positioned to provide new ways to service clients through the wealth of data and information it already manages.
Through EIS, Euroclear will deliver new solutions that help clients gain improved transparency in relation to the trading dynamics of illiquid corporate and government bonds, initially by measuring actual liquidity at an aggregated level. Further product roll-outs planned for 2018 will provide additional liquidity solutions for complex fixed income instruments, risk management information and asset servicing.
The new EIS business line will be an integral part of existing Euroclear’s services, including the Euroclear Collateral Highway, which allows market participants to access one of the largest global collateral pools and to manage collateral and liquidity across regions.
Jo Van de Velde, Head of Product Management, Strategy and Innovation at Euroclear commented: “The launch of Euroclear Information Solutions represents a true evolution in the way Euroclear services clients. Data is central to everything we do, so the ability to turn this information into an asset to meet client needs will be a major growth area. Euroclear Information Solutions highlights the value that Euroclear as a financial market infrastructure provides, helping clients operate effectively in global capital markets by supporting and unlocking market liquidity.”
