Tony is back from his two-week vacation! This week, Keiren Harris, strategy-based market data consultant and the founder of DataCompliance, joins Wei-Shen on the podcast to discuss how exchanges in Asia are approaching their data business. Keiren also writes about market data issues on MarketData.Guru

Also, next week from May 17 through to May 20, we have the WatersTechnology Innovation Exchange: Data Insights Spotlight. Check out the agenda here

5:00 Keiren joins the podcast, and they start with how things are literally heating up in Hong Kong.
7:00 He explains how exchanges are transitioning from providing raw data service to one where they’re adding value to their products, and the challenges in doing so.
10:00 Asian exchanges are a bit farther in the development of their data service. 
13:00 The Singapore Exchange (SGX) has refocused over the years to develop its index business.
17:00 Keiren says the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) is the classic transition exchange in terms of data.
21:00 Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing (HKEX) is still playing in the data space, not in the value-add space yet. Why change something that works?
28:00 Sometimes, getting information out of some exchanges is like getting blood out of a stone.
30:00 Japan Exchange Group (JPX) should be more of a giant in the exchange data business, but it is potentially held back by organizational culture.
38:00 Bursa Malaysia faces a different problem. There’s limited resources to maximize innovation in the data business.
