The London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) is looking into an outage at Refinitiv, its newly acquired data company, which has shut down its market data feed.
The problem has left traders and analysts (plus news organisations like Reuters and, ahem, the Guardian) reliant on other sources for market data.
LSEG’s £22bn purchase of Refinitiv from Thomson Reuters only completed at the end of January, and integrating the businesses is a key challenge for the company.
Refinitiv said (via Reuters): “We’re aware of an issue disrupting our service to customers.
“We are currently investigating the cause of the issue and working hard to resolve the problem. We apologise to customers for the disruption.”
