DTCC’s ETF Portfolio Data Service enhances users’ decision-making in the management of Exchange-Traded-Fund (ETF) portfolios with a consolidated, convenient and consistent feed of U.S.-listed ETFs.

  • About

    The ETF marketplace continues to grow as investors look to diversify their portfolios. Combining the tax advantages and low costs of index investing with the asset diversity found in mutual funds, an ETF tracks the performance of a group of assets without the need to purchase or hold the underlying components. The DTCC ETF Portfolio Data Service empowers brokers, fund managers, hedge funds, providers, redistributors, educational institutions and research firms to make better-informed decisions as they manage ETF portfolios.

    ETF data subscribers can review portfolio files instantaneously through an automated, centralized platform available 24/7. DTCC’s streamlined approach gives subscribers the ability to review, either online or in a data file, the ETF constituents that are analyzed and used in the creation and redemption of ETF shares and their subsequent settlement. This information can also be distributed automatically through a variety of secured transmission options, giving subscribers immediate access to the daily, near-real-time supplemental and historical portfolio files.
