Latest league tables provide the industry with benchmark rankings of global market data vendors by user types, products and company segments

The global financial market data/analysis industry generated over USD30 billion in revenue last year, although not all providers experienced equal success, according to three new reference reports published today by Burton-Taylor International Consulting (part of TP ICAP group).

Burton-Taylor’s new proprietary league tables provide definitive order to the top data providers, enabling market participants to easily rank the leading firms serving the financial market data/analysis industry.

These three new reports cover:

  • Users – Bloomberg ranked 1st in global revenue in all user groups except Investment Bankers/Corporate Financiers and Research Analysts (where Refinitiv + RTRS News led)
  • Products – Bloomberg was the leader in global revenue from all product groups except Research, where Refinitiv + RTRS News held the top spot
  • Segments – Bloomberg retained the top position in five out of the eight market segments, with Refinitiv + RTRS News holding the top spots in Investment Banking and FX/Treasury Sales & Trading and Platts remaining the leader in the Commodities & Energy segment
  • Although Bloomberg held the revenue lead in the greatest number of categories, Moody’s Analytics and TP ICAP led the most categories in five-year growth rate (including acquisitive revenue)
  • Companies ranked – Bloomberg, Dow Jones/Factiva, FactSet, FIS MarketMap, Intercontinental Exchange (Pricing & Analytics + Desktop), IRESS, IHS Markit, Moody’s Analytics, Morningstar, Quick, S&P Global Market Intelligence, SIX Financial, Refinitiv + RTRS News, as well as a selection of key smaller or regional players

“Several companies made important and possibly surprising moves within the rankings in 2018,” says Douglas B. Taylor, founder & Managing director of Burton-Taylor.  “This year’s rankings are certain to raise the eyebrows of many following the Financial Market Data industry.”
