Ballintrae is a leading market data management company. We specialise in data assurance services for both clients and data providers. Our deep exchange rules and regulations and client infrastructure expertise gives us a clear edge in helping providers understand client data usage and clients in managing their compliance.

Recently, Ballintrae has become the centre of gravity for a transformative, industry-supported market data management shared service utility.  Much of market data management within capital market firms confers no competitive advantage.  And monitoring, compliance and reporting can act as a significant drag on profitability. An industry-wide shared service utility is the logical answer to this issue.

As the investment banking industry becomes more aware and familiar with sharing functions across the ecosystem, a shared service utility will provide an unapparelled high quality service upon which it can rely for all market data management needs – along with the obvious advantages of much lower costs.  Similarly, exchanges will be able to rely on clients being compliant once they are in a shared service utility – a clear advantage in saving of auditing costs and greater transparency of data usage.
