A European Financial Instruments Reference Data System providing access to key data points on more than 34 million securities from over 50,000 issuers. eFIRDS increases transparency into the European capital markets and offers flexible ways of accessing the information either via web or automated API and feed delivery.




The service offers you data, information and insights to help you cope with regulatory data requirements for compliance needs, such as LEI, ISIN, CFI and MIC codes.
