Tullett Prebon Information First IDB Information Provider to Be Licensed to Distribute Data in China

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 1, 2012) - Tullett Prebon Information (TPI), one of the leading global suppliers of over-the-counter (OTC) financial data, has become the first inter-dealer broker information provider to be licensed by the State Council Information Service to distribute data in China.

Obtaining the licence builds upon the TPI's recent success at the Inside Market Data awards where it was named Best Data Provider for the second year running and highlights the business' commitment to support the growth of OTC markets in China.

Andrew Reeve, Head of Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa at Tullett Prebon Information said:

"We're pleased to have been granted a licence to distribute data in what is a key market for our business. Having recently signed a memorandum of understanding to provide financial data to Xinhua IPI, an affiliate of Xinhua News Agency, we're already witnessing demand for our products as the need for high quality, independent data continues to grow."

TPI's successful licence application is the latest in a series of strategic international developments by Tullett Prebon Information as it continues to expand its presence globally, notably in rapidly developing economies.

"Building strong relationships with key domestic distributors in markets such as China remains at the core of our long term growth strategy, particularly as demand for independent data grows and markets face ever-increasing competitive and regulatory pressure," added Frank Desmond, Managing Director of Tullett Prebon Information.
