Financial industry partner
As one of the leading information service providers to the financial industry, we have been supplying data solutions and integrated data and information to our customers for over 70 years. Our customers include banks and financial service providers, as well as regulatory authorities, insurance companies and software developers.
Our financial database - one of the world's largest, with more than two million financial instruments - covers almost the entire German and European spectrum. We provide integrated financial data by way of our web site, as well as in the form of standardised and tailored data feeds.
In addition, we offer services for such specialties as certificates and intraday issues, our unique data depth enabling us to contribute to maximum transparency.
We are also responsible for the allocation of German securities identification numbers (WKNs) and International Security Identification Numbers (ISINs) for German issuers
In addition, WM Datenservice is officially accredited by the GLEIF as international allocation agency for the Legal Identity Identifier (LEI). This internationally standardized and globally valid identifier for financial market participants serves to clearly identify business partners and to be able to meet certain reporting obligations towards the supervisory bodies.
International standardisation of securities
Standards for structuring and technically formatting diverse financial instruments are the basis for global straight through processing (STP) by financial institutions, despite the increasing complexity and internationalisation of the securities business
Given our experience and know-how, we are working to facilitate this process; we are involved with various national and international bodies such as DIN (Deutsches Institut für Normung), ISO (International Organization for Standardization), ANNA (Association of National Numbering Agencies) and ISSA (International Securities Services Association), contributing to the harmonisation of the international financial markets.
