For those of you that don’t know who Oxford is, they are arguably the most innovative provider of market intelligence and stock surveillance services in the investor relations market. Oxford was founded late last year by a former group of analysts at Bloom Partners, who were part of NASDAQ’s market intelligence and surveillance businesses. They left NASDAQ in 2014 and joined up with a group of quantitative developers (aka math geniuses) with the objective of bringing new predictive analytics and next generation stock surveillance to the market.
Since their inception they have created a set of quantitative analytics focused on providing forward looking insights into sentiment, volatility and activism. Earlier this year we partnered with Oxford to bring this predictive data and stock surveillance services to our clients. Since the start of our relationship it’s been a match made in heaven. I can’t understate the synergies between our two groups. I am so excited about the future and the products we are going to be bringing to the market over the coming months.
Oxford joining Q4 helps to accelerate our mission of becoming the world’s leading SaaS provider of capital markets intelligence and advanced communication for public companies and institutional investors.
