All services for your financial support

Ganzheitliches Angebot für Emittenten

Besides data feed and online products, WM Datenservice also provides a large number of services for the support of issuers as well as WM customers.

Provision of WM Data

The WM data can be provided in the following 2 formats: XML and VF1. Both formats are generated from EDDy (Enhanced Data Delivery). The VF1 text format is the classic data format in which WM has been providing securities data for many years. Every line begins with a 35 digit record identifier containing all information necessary for the identification of the notification.

Example for VF1:

GDE000CX0DNU3CX0DNU1900000368729 00″GD090 17022016″GD100A 1″GD172 EUR“GD198A SEC“GD198B 3000″GD198C 3101″GD198D W101″GD198E U201″GD198F K301″GD198G ZZZZ“GD200 00081″….

With the new EDDy database WM data can also be supplied in XML structure.

Example for XML:

finObj chgFlag=“i“ idName=“Instrument“ idVal=“2218689603525″ deliveryStatus=“no“ portfolioStatus=“np“>


<id scheme=“ISIN“>DE000A0WKKX2</id>

<id scheme=“WKN“>A0WKKX</id>


<section chgFlag=“i“ idName=“G“ idVal=“900000552281″>


<fld idName=“GD161″>

<datVl chgFlag=“i“>DE</datVl>


<fld idName=“GD209″>

<datVl chgFlag=“i“>7</datVl>


<fld idName=“GD212″>

<datVl chgFlag=“i“>993</datVl>


EDDy has also extended the technical spectrum of data delivery. In both formats it is possible to deliver issue related information. This means only those ISINs ordered will be provided. The ISINs can be ordered in a request file via the existing FTP account. Depending on the individual customer settings, the customer gets the initial load file returned within a few seconds. It is also possible to receive subject specific data, e.g. only in Germany listed shares will be delivered.

Now it is also possible to receive different products in one file. Master data of the GAT product, for example, can now be delivered with data of the IFK product as well as rating data in the same file. The WM documentation provides initial information on the new XML format.

We will gladly provide you with further information. Simply send us an email using our contact formular.

Corporate Action Event Reference (COAF)

WM Datenservice has been commissioned by the SMPG (=Securities Market Practice Group), the DESSUG (=Deutsche SWIFT Securities User Group) and the financial industry, to provide the COAF (= Corporate Action Event Reference) for the German market. The COAF is a worldwide excepted standard for the identification of corporate actions within each national market. The COAFs of the corresponding corporate actions can be downloaded daily as a CSV file (as of the effective date of our 79th Release on 22 February 2016). In addition, a historical monthly file, that includes all the daily files of the month in question, is made available at the end of every month.

FAQs – MiFID Data Provided to Customers by WM Datenservice

The Financial Markets Directive and Regulation MiFID II / MiFIR requires issuers of securities and other financial instruments to provide the market with data regarding target market and cost transparency in a timely manner. WM Datenservice receives this data from the issuers and transmits it to the market participants. Likewise, WM Datenservice is mandated to provide data on PRIIPs. According to the PRIIPs Regulation, the manufacturers of the respective investment product (PRIIPs manufacturers) - including insurance companies, credit institutions, capital management companies (KVG) and investment firms - must prepare KIDs for the financial instruments they issue and make them available to the distributors of PRIIPs ("distributors") as of December 31, 2016. For this purpose, WM Datenservice has set up appropriate interfaces. The FAQ list is intended to be a guide for you and provide answers to questions that may arise in your home.
