CDA/Spectrum and Technimetrics Join Forces

Traders Magazine, May 1998

Russell Bong, Staff Writer

The talent and resources of CDA/Spectrum and Technimetrics, two global leaders in providing institutional-ownership data to the financial markets, were recently combined to create an entirely new company to be called CDA/Spectrum. The new concern was created through the acquisition of Technimetrics by the Thomson Corp., the parent of CDA/Spectrum. In uniting the strengths of both organizations, the new CDA/Spectrum will achieve unrivaled data coverage and a delivery capability featuring an extensive array of products and services. The investor-relations advisory business of Technimetrics, also acquired by Thomson, will continue to be operated under the Technimetrics name.

CDA/Spectrum's principal product offerings to the financial-trading market include the Equity Gateway, an online service available via major market-data vendors. The recently released ShareWatch Gateway (see adjacent article) extends both the data coverage and functionality of the current Equity Gateway to meet the needs of today's financial-trading professionals. Additional CDA/Spectrum products include those developed using the Technimetrics ownership database. These products include Share/World via Unilink and Network Share/World, a client-server application. CDA/Spectrum plans to release another new product, Integrator, this summer. Integrator is expected to provide financial-trading institutions with an unbeatable combination of security-ownership data and information from Technimetrics' extensive database of institutions and contacts.
