Bloomberg’s Open Symbology (BSYM) is an open system for identifying securities across all global asset classes. Combined with the use of Bloomberg-generated open security identifiers, FIGIs, firms are able to abandon proprietary codes, eliminate redundant mapping processes, streamline the trade workflow and reduce operational risk.

Bloomberg is committed to continuously building, updating, and administering its identifiers to ensure they continue to serve as effective symbols for the broad uses required in today’s financial markets.
