Corporate Events Data to help you better manage volatility, risk, and compliance – DIH

What’s Included in Our Corporate Events Data.

Our data consist of corporate events that will occur in the future, including the dates and release times of:

  • Company results
  • Company meetings
  • Trade shows
  • Investor conferences

From these events, we collect and aggregate vital information that market participants depend upon to make their investment decisions. We then deliver the data in a customizable feed in XML or Excel® format.

There is a common set of data that we collect for each event:

  • Start Date
  • Start Time
  • End Date
  • End Time
  • Location (City and Country)
  • Time Zone
  • Event Title
  • Event Description

Also, each event has an event status:

  1. Confirmed – either from the company or a secondary source
  2. Tentative – the company hasn’t released the exact date of the release/meeting
  3. Canceled

We also include the relevant security reference data with our corporate events data for easy integration and cross-referencing.

How We Build The Data Set

Our corporate events data set is built by collecting raw data from a wide range of companies and markets and tagging it.

Then a global team of experienced data analysts with a wide range of language skills and specific ‘local’ knowledge ensures the data is accurate and complete. They use distributed Data Collection Models and are supported by WebWatcher software providing automatic monitoring of websites for new announcements and updates.

The data is verified against secondary sources and a high degree of accuracy is guaranteed by central quality control.

How DIH Clients Use Our Data.

Including corporate events data in your risk analysis can help you better minimizing risk exposures. Volatility often increases around such events.

However, risk managers aren’t the only people who rely upon our corporate events data. Here are several other common uses of such data:

  • Portfolio managers may hold off on rebalancing their portfolios because they know a potential risk event is on the horizon due to corporate events.
  • Compliance departments that monitor corporate events can better manage such internal risks as insider trading and internal fraud. Most insider activity occurs around such events, but armed with corporate events data, Compliance will know when to be on the lookout for suspicious activity within their own firms.
  • Broker-Dealers rely upon corporate events to better predict volatility and manage their margin requirements (e.g. ensure their clients have enough collateral during such times of volatility).

Flexible Updates & Delivery.

We update our data 24/5 as soon as new data is released.

You may customize our data to best suit your needs. For example, specify the countries or companies from which you’d like to receive data. Also, choose how much historical data you’d like, and whether you wish to subscribe for updates going forward.

We offer several ways to access our data:

XML – Data is delivered on an end-of-day or intra-daily basis through an XML feed in the FutureML format, an XML mark-up language developed specifically for future events data.  The data is indexed by ISIN, and can be tailored to your specific needs.  For example, receive data based upon country, event type, or for your specific portfolio.

Excel® Reports – Receive tailored future event reports in Microsoft Excel® format for an easy way to view, filter, edit, and share the data.
