QUANT HOUSE PUTS CHICAGO less than 45 milliseconds away from LONDON allowing program trading firms of both cities to benefit from accurate & ultra low latency market data feeds

London and Paris - 31 October 2006

Quant House, the ultra low latency market data feeds, feed handlers and solutions provider for quant traders and low latency sensitive financial institutions, today announced that the combination of its feed handlers technology with the performance of its private fully owned global fiber optic network between Chicago, New York, London, Paris and Frankfurt will allow program trading firms in London to have access to Chicago based exchanges in less than 45 milliseconds. This duration takes into account the data capture process directly from the exchange, the feed handler processing time and the distribution time between Chicago and London.

In addition, Chicago based hedge funds can benefit from similar outstanding performances to get market data feeds from European based exchanges available through Quant House: Euronext, Euronext Liffe, Xetra, Eurex…

Pierre-François Filet, CEO & Founder of Quant House, commented:

"Financial institutions using program trading technologies are very interested in adopting the most efficient solutions to improve the performance of their algorithmic trading while reducing the associated implementation complexity and costs. Both buy side and sell side firms are under pressure to migrate from legacy market data vendors to the next generation of accurate and low latency market data providers ; and Quant House is definitely well positioned to help them change successfully.”

Stéphane Leroy, Head of Global Sales and Marketing at Quant House, added:

"The combination of our feed handlers technology enabling sub-millisecond processing time, our hosting facilities located at the closest point to the exchange and our global fiber optic network is an end-to-end solution allowing clients to benefit from a very powerful solution with the easiest implementation process. In addition, clients can constantly check services performance through our web based client monitoring tools.”
