- Illustrates evolution from legacy to next generation solutions
- S&P Capital IQ quant products boost profits of systematic trading firms
New York, Paris and London, 6 June 2012: QuantHouse, a business of S&P Capital IQ providing real-time market data and end-to-end systematic trading, announced that Deep Blue Capital, a Netherlands-based high-tech fully automated trading firm, has implemented the company’s QuantFEED and QuantLINK products to improve its business performance.
QuantHouse works with its large buy-side client base to easily integrate the latest technology into their existing infrastructure and investment approach. This will in turn standardise and rationalise trading capabilities as well as deliver improved risk and budget control for optimum performance levels.
QuantFEED captures raw data co-located within the exchange, performs micro-second decoding and delivers normalised data through a single API (Application Programming Interface). QuantLINK is the ultimate trading infrastructure combining QuantHouse proprietary fiber optic network interconnecting the heart of the exchanges with proximity hosting at the source.
Duncan Sands, CTO at Deep Blue Capital, commented:
“After a thorough evaluation process, it was clear that QuantHouse offers the most advanced and cost-effective data feed technology in the market. The power and flexibility of its technology has allowed us to expand easily into new global markets and places us on a par with the best equipped trading rooms in the world.”
Pierre-François Filet, co-founder and managing director of QuantHouse, added:
“QuantHouse understands that in tough trading environments, keeping costs low while improving trading performance and company profits, is of the utmost importance. We look forward to working with Deep Blue Capital as well as our asset management and hedge fund clients to meet the most demanding trading strategies across all geographic locations.”
Stephane Leroy, Head of global Sales and Marketing of QuantHouse, concluded:
“Buy-side technology has evolved considerably over the past few years as systematic trading firms seek the next generation of electronic trading systems. Recent market volatility has shown the limitations of legacy data software and businesses are increasingly turning to QuantHouse, for efficient and market-tested services, to stay ahead of the competition.”
