IT BEGAN WITH A PIVOT

THE BEGINNING

We didn’t start off as a market data company. When CEO Stephane Dubois left a financial technology firm in 2000, his original goal was to develop a wealth management platform. Hampered by large legacy data vendors restricting access to the market data he needed to power his platform, Stephane decided to create his own market data APIs. Other firms with similar market data delivery and integration issues soon started asking him for access to the APIs and a new idea was born. Stephane pivoted his company to focus on making market data easily accessible via APIs stored in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) public cloud.
