Online compliance database of market data policies & pricing information

PEAR is an industry-leading exchange compliance database

PEAR (Policies, Explanations, Analytics, Repository) consolidates the latest exchange information which includes policies and pricing in a searchable online database.

Globally, it allows you to keep up to date with the latest exchange policy trends and interpretations.


Simplify your market data management processes

PEAR covers over 250 markets and monitors over 700 documents and exchange notices daily. This ensures clients are notified of any changes to rules, prices and policy interpretation. PEAR applies standardized searchable terms across global exchange policies reducing complexity and risk from different interpretations.


Ensure compliance with your market data usage

Understanding the rules and pricing around market data can be complex. With PEAR, you are provided with information surrounding exchange products including the fees for accessing and distributing data, as well as understanding how to use the data compliantly.


Automate the workflow of managing your exchanges' updates

Keeping up to date with the various price and policy changes made by exchanges can be a challenging task.  PEAR simplifies this process by automatically sending out exchange announcements, providing you with details on changes across the global list of exchanges.

Optimize your market data compliance

Many financial institutions – large and small – struggle to understand and keep informed with various price and policy changes made by exchanges. PEAR is designed to specifically solve this problem.


How to keep up to date with all the policy and price changes made by exchanges?

Today, one of the biggest problems facing market data professionals is keeping up to date with the various price and policy changes made by exchanges. With a heavy reliance on vendors and subscribers to inform their client base, there is always a risk of the message becoming lost in already overloaded inboxes. This typically results in data subscribers having to seek this information for themselves.

The solution is to have access to an industry-leading database of market data policies and pricing managed by a dedicated team of experts. With an intuitive design, PEAR has a homepage for each exchange giving you access to sections on products, policies and copies of documents.

This approach simplifies the process of market data management allowing users to pinpoint the single piece of information that they require, or compare policies and pricing from multiple exchanges within the same interface.
