Infront, provider of modern terminals for global market data, analytics and trading, today announced the inclusion of indexes provided by the Freedom Index Company within the Infront terminal. With the integration, the independent Freedom indexes are made available for benchmarking on the Infront market data terminal combining flexibility, speed and cost efficiency.
Financial indexes are used as benchmarks to help asset managers gauge how well the markets as well as their own investments are performing. The availability of the Freedom indexes on the Infront terminal makes them more accessible, allowing asset managers to compare and historically analyse their portfolios with charts and other extensive market data directly on the Infront terminal.
“We are pleased to be able to provide access to the Freedom indexes on the Infront terminal. Their inclusion provides users with independent and free indexes for benchmarking purposes, in line with our goals to provide market leading data and analytics in a flexible and cost efficient solution,” says Morten Lindeman, CTO at Infront.
Infront is the first European market data vendor to incorporate the indices and make them freely available to over 12,000 existing users. The data can be downloaded from the terminal into spreadsheets for further analysis and can be freely re-used or redistributed. There are 48 Freedom indexes in total, which until now have only been available via the Freedom Index website.
Carl Bacon, founder of the Freedom Index Company adds, “The Freedom indexes are completely independent, free and open for all. The inclusion of the indexes in the Infront terminal puts them into a professional context where they can be used to their fullest advantage together with other market data.”
