About CloudQuant

Our Story

  • In over 30 years of investing and trading we have come to be firm believers in accelative power of technology and data. This is the core of the CloudQuant initiative.
  • We learned that spending weeks and sometimes months of integrating data into trading or portfolio systems was a colossal waste of our time. We believe it is a waste of your time too.
  • Two years ago we set out to solve that problem for our clients.
  • We believe:
    • You should be able to try data before you buy it
    • You should be able to have data delivered to you with reliable timestamps
    • You should be able to trust your data
    • You shouldn’t have to integrate with every data vendor on the planet
    • You should be able to concentrate on your business
    • You should profit from your use of data
  • Our story of innovation continues as we partner with our clients to find the crescendo in new datasets
