Query the RIC of a ticker using keywords

I have a list of company names and ticker symbols which maybe different from the correct RIC that reuters uses. For example I might say 'Reliance', but the correct RIC would be 'RELI.NS'. I'm using python API. Is there any way I can get the RIC using a keyword programmatically instead of searching manually and finding it out?

Hi @aditya


What you are asking above would be possible using the Search capabilities of Refinitiv data libraries for Python. You can learn more about the APIs in this reference guide.

This article would be very useful for building the search queries and this article for easy identification of properties and values. I have tried to build a simple request before:

import refinitiv.data as rd
rd.open_session()
rd.discovery.search(
    query = 'Reliance',
    select = "PrimaryRIC, DocumentTitle"
)

You can narrow the output by providing filter criteria following the resources above.


Hope this helps.


Best regards,

Haykaz
