Deutsche Börse will act as the exclusive licensor of Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) market data and information products to all international clients.
The new cooperation will benefit existing and potential customers by giving them access to both exchanges’ market data products under a single license agreement. A signing ceremony was held in Frankfurt on 2 October 2013.
The partnership also allows Deutsche Börse to deepen its client service capabilities in important Asian markets such as India, as well as strengthen the strategic alliance between the two exchanges.
“By partnering with BSE we give customers access to the full suite of real-time, delayed and end-of-day data products offered by both exchanges under a single license agreement. This approach meets clients’ market data needs while reducing their administrative requirements and increasing overall efficiency,” says Georg Gross, head of front office data and services, Deutsche Börse.
“BSE is once again happy to partner with Deutsche Börse as this will enhance BSE's visibility with international clients in the area of market data and information products. BSE will also get access to the innovative product development expertise of Deutsche Börse, which shall help BSE to provide an improved customer experience,” says Balasubramaniam Venkataramani, chief business officer, BSE Ltd.
Under the new cooperation, Deutsche Börse will be responsible for sales and marketing of all BSE market data products to customers outside of India, while BSE continues to serve its domestic clients. Deutsche Börse will also share joint responsibility for product development and innovation, which includes extending its existing and the creation of new market data solutions and infrastructure to support BSE’s product offerings.
Products covered under the cooperation agreement include real-time, delayed and end-of-day data for BSE’s equity and derivatives markets, corporate data such as results, announcements, shareholding patterns and corporate actions as well as real-time and delayed indices.
This market data agreement also further strengthens the cooperation between Deutsche Börse and BSE that began earlier this year. In March 2013, the two exchanges announced a long-term technology partnership in which BSE will deploy Deutsche Börse Group’s trading infrastructure.
