ISIN to RIC retrieval via TREP API

Hi Team,

We have a client who's using Thomson Reuters Enterprise Platform (TREP) via Robust Foundation API (RFA) and they receive live market data into liquidator/orc/tbricks which is a black box calculation engine…


When adding a new stock to their universe, they require the reuters code and would like to know how to automatically get it everyday for a given FIGI or ISIN. Is it possible to have a universe list of rics that we send out daily by email or ftp or an API you provide to our data customers to know what ric to add to the trading system? They just need the ric to initialise the feed.

RFA and other TREP APIs cannot retrieve data using ISIN nor convert ISIN to RIC. The client has to know RIC codes in advance. Therefore client unable to automatically get RIC code by using the TREP APIs.

If they need to convert ISIN to RIC, they have to use API such as DSS or TRTH API to convert ISIN to RIC codes and then pass it to the TREP APIs when requesting the data from Elektron Real-Time. Otherwise, the content support team should provide the RIC list to the client.
