Nasdaq plans to combine Quandl with its Analytics Hub business within Global Information Services following its acquisition of the data and core financial data provider.

Quandl provides alternative data and core financial data from over 350 sources to more than 30,000 active monthly users. The company offers a global database of alternative, financial and public data, including information on capital markets, energy, shipping, healthcare, education, demography, economics and society.

Bjorn Sibbern, executive vice president and head of Nasdaq’s Global Information Services, says: “Quandl will allow Nasdaq to partner more closely with the investing community as the industry continuously seeks ways to evaluate an endless supply of information to drive new insights, investment ideas and deliver alpha. The company’s leadership, user community and team of data scientists, combined with Nasdaq’s alternative data group and global reach, will help our diverse client base derive a broad array of new investing opportunities.”

Tammer Kamel, CEO of Quandl, adds: “Investors are demanding actionable intelligence from new and expansive data sources at an increasingly rapid rate. Joining Nasdaq will enable us to serve investors with strengthened real-time capabilities and greatly enhanced data hygiene and symbology. Our existing set of clients, including the world’s top hedge funds and investment banks, will also benefit from our mutual vision that data is going to become the primary driver of active investment performance over the next decade.”
