Partnering with multiple providers to create market data lake across different asset classes
DUBLIN and NEW YORK, June 6, 2018
AQMetrics, the award-winning provider of regulatory compliance and risk reporting solutions and authorised Central Bank of Ireland Approved Reporting Mechanism (ARM), today announced the extension of its platform to include a “golden source” of market data for in-depth pre-trade and post-trade risk analytics and regulatory reporting. By partnering with a number of global market data providers, AQMetrics’ customers now benefit from an extensive market data lake.
During the past year, to support a growing demand for its risk and regulatory reporting solutions, AQMetrics has been heavily investing in its Apache Spark based platform, architected to manage the largest exchange, trade and market data sets at great velocity. The firm has now also partnered with a number of market data providers across multiple markets and jurisdictions, to bring together the comprehensive data repository on which it now bases its risk analytics.
Geraldine Gibson, CEO at AQMetrics commented, “AQMetrics is well placed to leverage our approved reporting platform and transaction processing technology to meet the increased regulatory focus on detection and control in a pre- and post-trade environment. An example of the increased regulatory focus in this area is the recent FCA Report on Algorithmic Trading“. She added, “Combining our platform with a golden source of market data from a wide range of vendors, we are able to deliver a even more comprehensive analytics and reporting solution.”
The market data repository will also enable AQMetrics to run more advanced analytics for its clients, providing a deeper and wider view of the market and potential detection of anomalies in high frequency and algorithmic trading activity.
AQMetrics is very pleased to have been awarded several industry accolades over the past year including the most recent as Best Technology Firm from CTA Intelligence US Services Awards 2018, awarded to service providers to the US managed futures industry that have demonstrated exceptional customer service, innovative product development and growth over the past 12 months.
