NEW YORK, June 2, 2009 -- NYSE Euronext was recognized as the “Best Exchange Data Provider” by the weekly trade publication Inside Market Data in its annual awards to vendors and exchanges.
NYSE Euronext Recognized as Best Exchange Data Provider
Inside Market Data also recognized NYSE Euronext in a new category called “Most Innovative Market Data Project” for a new pricing policy that charges vendors based on the number of subscribers rather than display devices they have. The new “unit of count” policy was widely applauded by customers as it reflected the way in which data is consumed today.
The winners were determined by readers of Inside Market Data. Thirteen awards were given in categories that ranged from Best Research Provider to Best Low Latency Data Vendor.
“We’re gratified that IMD readers — who represent many of our customers — recognized our work on their behalf. For NYSE Euronext, it is a reaffirmation of our approach to client service. We strive to stay close to customers and develop innovative ways to serve their changing needs,” said Ron Jordan, executive vice president of Market Data at NYSE Euronext.
"I congratulate the finalists and winners of the Inside Market Data awards,” said Max Bowie, editor of Inside Market Data. “Our awards aim to reflect a cross-section of public opinion.”
