Directory Storage and Distribution module

The Directory Storage and Distribution module is a single centralized storage of information about asset types, instruments, par values, ACI and calendars, received from external sources. It automatically synchronizes its instrument directory with those of Modules-client, such as the Broker quotation system and QUIK OMS.

Supported Asset Types:

  • stocks,
  • bonds.


The Module stores only the set of instruments which is used in QUIK.

The unified module directory can be compiled from external sources through its own database by using stored procedures or via adapters provided upon the broker’s request.

The Module works both simultaneously with several adapters and without any adapter.

When working with adapters, directories of sections and calendars are automatically provided with a full set of parameters from external sources without the need to order them manually.

With the help of adapters, it is possible to perform integration with the automated back-office backQORT. It allows uploading the information about sections, assets, instruments, coupons, par values, and calendars from backQORT to the Module.

Directory Distribution

Modules-client subscribe to required instruments in the Directory Storage and Distribution module with specifying a set of MIC-codes. During synchronization, the instrument directory compiled in accordance with the subscription is transmitted by the Module to the Module-client where the rules are set for distribution of instruments by classes (MIC, ISIN, etc.).
