ChartIQ Adds Financial Powerhouse Fidessa to Customer Portfolio


Dan Schleifer, CEO of ChartIQ says, “The relationship between Fidessa and ChartIQ highlights an important trend in the financial technology market—other capital market leaders like Fidessa are partnering with innovative and fast-moving companies like ChartIQ to bring new solutions to market. Our partnership is not just about two technology companies working together to integrate. We share the vision of the institutional desktop’s future—a future that will enhance the trader’s user experience and workflow all around.”

Steve Grob, Director of Group Strategy at Fidessa comments: "We are constantly scanning the capital markets technology scene to uncover exciting companies that stand apart for the quality of their software and that share our values and our vision. The evolution of technologies such as HTML5 and more powerful visualisation and analytical techniques are now allowing us to contextualise information right into the live trading workflow and we're excited to be working with ChartIQ to deliver this to our own community.”

ChartIQ’s charting solution provides powerful, yet intuitive tools to traders with an expertise in taking large amounts of financial data and turning it into highly visual and actionable information. This tool alone sets ChartIQ apart from nearly every vendor on the market. It is the latest firm to join the Fidessa program and brings innovative charting capabilities that put social, fundamental and macro data into context. This is important since, increasingly, firms are looking to combine structured and unstructured data in order to create actionable trading insights. This new partnership will extend the range of analytics already available to Fidessa's trading platform customers, providing them with analyst reports, price targets, historical trade activity, transaction cost analysis and other proprietary information displayed in intuitive charts, available directly within the context of a trader's workflow.

ChartIQ provides a “Web 2.0” front-end user experience that is new to the financial category, pairing a lightweight experience with professional-grade technology built specifically for analyzing capital market data. Built in HTML5 and JavaScript, the ChartIQ toolkit allows investment banks, brokerages and institutions to re-imagine what they want their user interfaces to look like and easily build and deploy a UI that works across mobile, web, and desktop—all within a single technology stack.
