Mr Alexandros Gouveris, manager of AGFN, states, âThe alliance with SIX Telekurs gives AGFN the opportunity not only to expand geographically, but also to approach other customer segments, and enrich the content of our product. We are now in position to offer our customers international stock exchanges, FOREX, commodities and other financial instrumentsâ.
For over 14 years AGFN has offered data from the local Greek and Cypriot stock exchanges. However, both after the inclusion of Cyprus in the European Union and the launch of the common platform between Athens Stock Exchange and Cypriot Stock Exchange, financial community needs have changed.
âWe believe that international financial data is a necessary and indispensable tool for a wide range of companies and organisations, ranging from import/export companies to a dealing room, and even Central Banks. After our expansion in Eastern Europe, the next step for our company is to be able to offer any market timely, accurately as we do since 1995â, says Mr Gouveris.
Mr Adriano Bazzi, Head SIX Telekurs Italy/Southern Europe says, âTeaming up with AGFN, which offered the expertise in the Balkan area, was considered an ideal opportunity for expanding our operation in this area. The combination of the local presence and market knowledge of AGFN with our established international product offering represents an interesting and promising constellation for us and the customers in this marketâ.
The SIX Telekurs database includes real time prices and securities administration data on more than 5 million instruments from over 850 data sources. âThis is one of the major reasons AGFN is happy about this coalition. It gives us the opportunity to satisfy all customer requests.â says Mr Gouveris.
Both managers hope to deliver sustainable and innovative solutions to current and future clients as well as market-oriented content and professional support.
