By incorporating TT symbology into the global product reference data maintained on the Databank Network, TT’s clients will be fully interoperable with all FIA Tech services as well as other ISV participants in the Databank Network. FIA Tech’s Databank provides firms with a cross reference of exchange and vendor product symbologies, which can be used by subscribers to simplify integration of systems from best of breed providers, communicate more easily with clients and counterparties and simplify integration to FIA Tech services.
