Bloomberg has launched a real-time market data feed in the cloud and available on Amazon Web Services (AWS). B-PIPE provides access to the same market data available through the Bloomberg Terminal.
The new service allows clients to simultaneously stream data for 35 million instruments across all asset classes, as well as deploy a single application – either on-premises, via hosted, or on the cloud, just by using a common API.
Tony McManus, Chief Information Officer for Bloomberg’s Enterprise Data department, said:
“The capital markets are nearing a tipping point for cloud adoption. This is increasingly true for front-office applications where the cloud can provide reliability without the high cost of managing servers or the performance limitations of internet-based connections. With efficient data delivery, a core pillar of our business, making B-PIPE available on the cloud is our first step in meeting customer demand. With easier access to quality market data on the cloud, clients can focus on generating value from data rather than installing and managing dedicated infrastructure.”
To simplify the security of data shared with cloud-based applications, Bloomberg B-PIPE was made available on AWS PrivateLink.
The company has recently launched an institutional grade benchmark for the cryptocurrency market, called BGCI. The market capitalization-weighted index was designed together with Mike Novogratz’s leading digital asset management firm Galaxy Digital Capital Management LP. The BGCI measures the performance of ten USD-traded cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Monero, Ripple, and Zcash.
In April 2018, Bloomberg announced a joint venture with CBOE’s Bats that allows their customers to use the companies’ Approved Publication Arrangements (APA) to fulfil MiFID II transparency reporting requirements. Bloomberg’s Regulatory Hub (RHUB) connects to Bloomberg Approved Publication Arrangement (APA)2 and Approved Reporting Mechanism (ARM)3 for transparency and transaction reporting.
Also in April, Dash Financial hired a Bloomberg executive as Director of Execution Services. Jamie Bogen joined Dash from Bloomberg Tradebook where she spent nine years serving as senior client relationship manager and was responsible for growing institutional sales in North America.
