Simplfy the management of information: The ability to consistently and reliably identify securities is a growing challenge for a financial industry faced with increased regulation, fragmented global markets and a proliferation of new instruments and trading venues. Our comprehensive set of capabilities and services can help you achieve higher data accuracy, more efficient trade workflows and better linking of information across multiple entity types.
The RIC symbol is a structured and human-readable market-level security identifier, developed and maintained by Thomson Reuters and used extensively by our clients for over 30 years. It is widely used across equities, fixed income, commodities, foreign exchange and money markets as an identifier of both instruments and derivatives.
We license the RIC in two ways, making it easier for the market to use Thomson Reuters symbology in the integration, management and distribution of data. Click below to find more about licenses.
