With the expansion of the product range and a globalisation of capital markets, up-to-date background information on exchange-traded instruments plays an ever important role. This includes: data on the issuer and the listed security, such as listed amount, information on dividend or interest payments, etc.
BSE provides investors with a wide range of reference data, including:
- data used for product identification: ISIN, ticker code, product name, product type;
- date of listing and expiry, maturity, first and last trading days;
- face value, listed quantity;
- yield information, interest, size and date of dividend payments, reimbursement;
- information on the issuer.
Reference data are ensured by the BSE through several channels and platforms:
Reference data via vendors
