Nasdaq Dorsey Wright Integrates OptionsPlay to Promote Options

Nasdaq users will be educated on the potential benefits of using options for clients’ portfolios.

Nasdaq Dorsey Wright, part of Nasdaq, Inc., announced this Monday that it is integrating OptionsPlay into its Global Research Platform, in order to give its clients access to options strategies.

Nasdaq Dorsey Wright is an investment advisory, research, and model portfolio business and was created after Nadsaq, Inc. acquired Dorsey Wright in 2015. OptionsPlay, on the other hand, provides analytics for options data which allows clients to generate investment insights.

Following the integration, OptionsPlay analytics are available to Nasdaq Dorsey Wright Research Platform users. Specifically, they will be able to access educational materials, as well as strategic insights based on the options market.

The main aim of the integration is to accelerate access to tools for advisors, who don’t have access to options data or the ability to integrate it into their strategies. In addition to providing the tools needed for advisors, by adding OptionsPlay to its platform, Nasdaq users will be educated on the potential benefits of using options for clients’ portfolios, the statement said.
