Exegy, a provider of end-to-end, front-office trading solutions for the capital markets, has signed an introducer partnership agreement with BMLL Technologies (BMLL), an independent provider of harmonised, Level 3 historical data and analytics to hedge funds, asset managers, banks and brokers.
The alliance allows traders to manually take granular, historical data to fine-tune algos and use the data in Exegy’s back-testing and simulation solutions to derive alpha.
Exegy clients will have access to BMLL’s normalised historical, T+1 data from over 75 global venues (covering equities, futures and ETFs), with a minimum of three years of history, but mostly six or seven years. In addition, the data is cloud-based, making for easy access to data, analysis, and testing. As BMLL is a vendor of record, clients will also be spared the administrative headache and delay of having to manage multiple exchange licenses.
Typically, up to 80% of a quant’s time is spent on data analysis, and only 20% on developing algos. BMLL frees up the time spent on the analysis process, effectively democratising access to trading intelligence.
