My firm utilizes vendor symbology to refer to products in our internal systems. Is this data available within the Contract Specs offering?
Yes. Contract Specifications includes datapoints for numerous vendor symbologies, including Bloomberg, GMI, and RIC, with additional symbologies being under regular review with partners to further expand the universe of available data.
What if the symbology I'm interested in is missing from your list of partners?
FIA Tech works closely with partners in the space to support a high level of interoperability between FIA Tech services and external systems. If a desired symbology is not currently available, please reach out to us at Databank@fia-tech.com, and we'll work to onboard additional data providers!
Is Cross-Reference symbology data available in other FIA Tech products?
Yes. Enhanced product symbology is available in numerous other FIA Tech products, including Databank's PLD and EFD offerings, as well as the Docs Give-up Agreement (GUA) and Fee's and Commissions Repository (FCR) offerings. Interested firms are encouraged to reach out to Sales@fia-tech.com for information on these subscriptions.
How can I use Contract Specs data within my internal systems?
Data is available to be pulled from the UI or consumed via SFTP, and leveraged in internal systems. API and CSV export functionality are both in our development roadmap, to expand on integration points.
