The Object Management Group® (OMG®) is inviting public comments on a proposed framework for the Financial Instrument Global Identifier (FIGI) specification authored by Bloomberg, the global provider of financial and business news, information and technology. The submission deadline is May 19th. All comments will help the OMG’s global membership decide how to proceed with the proposal at the consortium’s meeting in Boston, MA this June.
Many systems used today have been built around proprietary, closed methodologies for identifying financial securities. Hundreds of symbologies are used, with companies often using various classification methods to name and manage financial securities and map contextual information during the trade negotiation, execution, settlement and clearing processes.
Supporting multiple identifier methodologies can make data management and integration more costly and redundant. The FIGI proposal – based on Bloomberg’s Open Symbology for naming securities using a unique 12-digit alpha-numeric identifier -- aims to remove this obstacle by specifying the structure and semantics of Global Identifiers, how they are constructed and validated, and their relationship with other financial information.
“Working with the OMG to establish an open standard for naming financial securities represents an important milestone in our ongoing commitment to support open technology solutions,” said Peter Warms, Global Data Manager, Bloomberg. “We believe the FIGI establishes an open, universal and comprehensive system for naming financial instruments that will help institutions shift resources from redundant data management and reconciliation activities to enhancing client service and pursuing growth opportunities.”
“The openness of Internet-based systems has profoundly altered the way businesses collect, manage and share information,” added Dr. Richard Soley, Chairman and CEO of OMG. “Markets, customers, and governments are now demanding similar levels of connectivity, transparency, and efficiency from financial systems. We look forward to building consensus around the precise details of an open symbology, and welcome Bloomberg’s initiative in starting this process.”

Traditional on-premises data centers have long been the domain of modern data platforms like Apache Hadoop, meaning companies who build their business on public cloud were challenged to run Big Data processing and analytics at scale. But recent advancements in Hadoop performance, security, and most importantly cloud-native integrations, are giving organizations the ability to truly gain value from all their data. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, David Tishgart, Director of Product Marketing ...
