RIXML.org, a consortium of buy-side, sell-side and vendor firms that is developing the first open standard for investment research, says SNL Financial, an information and research firm, has joined the organisation.
“The ever-expanding RIXML network is shaping the future of investment research and SNL Financial is delighted to join RIXML as an associate member,” says Mike Chinn, SNL President. “SNL looks forward to actively contributing to the RIXML organization, which is clearly defining the industry standard for investment research. SNL’s membership marks a major stride in becoming the preferred research aggregator for the industry that SNL covers: Banks & Thrifts, Insurance, Financial Services, Real Estate, energy and Media & Communications.”
SNL Financial will participate as an Associate Member of RIXML, which is a membership category that encourages all industry participants to get involved in the development and implementation of the standard. With the addition of SNL Financial, the total number of Associate and Steering Committee members grows to twenty-two.
