ICAP Information Services, the information arm of ICAP plc, a markets operator and provider of post-trade risk mitigation and information services, and Wind Information, a provider of financial data in China, have teamed up to extend their market data portfolio to include real-time US Treasury pricing and global FX spot rates.
Informed Investment Decisions
The partnership between the two firms was initially signed in early 2015 to provide offshore Chinese renminbi (CNH) and end-of-day US Treasury data in China. The new offering now includes real-time benchmark data for US Treasury yield curves.
Kevin Taylor, Managing Director of IIS, commented: “Data transparency is becoming an increasingly important topic, especially when it comes to managing risk in making investment decisions. At IIS, we also see the value and importance of promoting open and transparent data. Together with Wind Info, ICAP will continue to deliver timely, multi-faceted market data intelligence to our clients to help them make informed investment decisions during an era of more stringent financial regulation.”

Wind Info’s clients at home and abroad can now gain full access to all ICAP data.
Together with the data already available, Wind Info’s extensive global institutional client base can now gain access to timely, accurate data via the Wind terminal to enable more accurate price discovery and pre-trade analysis.
Wind Info clients can now also access additional spot FX data covering the majority of G20 currencies 24 hours a day, including AUD/USD, EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/HKD and more. As the FX marketplace is constantly evolving, this reliable data stream will help traders to do business at any time of day.
Zhou Li, co-founder and SVP of Wind Info, added: “Wind Info’s clients at home and abroad can now gain full access to all ICAP data. We see this as an important milestone in our partnership with IIS and a fulfillment of our unwavering commitment to offering highly accurate and reliable data to our clients. Going forward, we will also step up our efforts to further expand overseas and reach out to clients in new markets such as Singapore and the United States.”
The new partnership is the latest in a series of collaborations for ICAP plc. In May, Finance Magnates reported that ICAP Energy, the energy affiliate of ICAP plc, partnered with transaction reporting specialist, Abide Financial, to strengthen its regulatory reporting functions and facilitate any other desired customer workflows for REMIT reporting.
