VDF Plus

The Vdf Plus service is the solution, designed for financial intermediaries, that allows to receive

  • prices
  • master and administrative data

easily accessible from the web or in a format that can be directly integrated into customer databases.

The monitoring of managed securities is an onerous process, sometimes underestimated.


In this regard, there is an ever-increasing demand for STP both for the operations and for the registry component.


In fact, there is no doubt about the benefits of having an automatic updating process of registry information and prices on Italian and foreign financial instruments – listed and unlisted – through a controlled and centralized process.

VDF Plus : what is it and to whom is it addressed?

A solution 1(nota)  designed for Banks and Financial Institutions that allows to receive prices, master and administrative data that can be easily consulted or directly integrated into the customer’s systems and databases (back office procedures, risk management, portfolio management, trading).



  • Basic data of each instrument and issuers;
  • Information relating to events (e.g.: Corporate Actions) that occur during the life of the instrument;
  • Prices and Statistical values (e.g. volatility).

By subscribing to VDF Plus you can delegate the management of the company process of obtaining reference data in your portfolios and the related monitoring process (official prices, coupons, quotas, ratings, corporate actions, reclassifications, risk assessments, etc.).


The service is completely automatic and is based on the subscription mechanism: by providing the list of stocks on which you want to have the update you will immediately get the initial load of the portfolio and from the next day onwards daily updates and prices.


All of this in an electronic format immediately available for updating your procedures.
