S&P Global Calls QuantHouse Sale Part Of Realignment

Market information provider S&P Global’s sale of market data and end-to-end systematic trading solutions provider QuantHouse, which it had acquired in 2012, is intended to allow its S&P Global Market Intelligence division to focus on opportunities “that most closely align with our vision,” says Mike Chinn, president of S&P Global Market Intelligence.

Access to exchange pricing, which was touted as a reason for the acquisition by S&P Capital IQ’s [later merged with SNL Financial to become S&P Global] president at the time of the acquisition, Lou Eccleston, may not have been enough of a justification for keeping the QuantHouse business.

In the April 2012 announcement of the acquisition, Eccleston said QuantHouse capabilities would help S&P Capital IQ build its own real-time monitors, derived data sets and analytics; and that QuantHouse would serve as a foundation for S&P’s Enterprise Solutions business. QuantHouse turned out to be less relevant for S&P valuations business.

Nine years earlier, S&P sold a previous real-time market data effort, S&P Comstock, to Interactive Data.

Pierre Feligioni, a founder of QuantHouse, has acquired the company from S&P Global. The acquisition will allow QuantHouse “to regain focus and flexibility to exploit growing market opportunities in North America, Europe and Asia,” says Feligioni. He adds that QuantHouse can now become “the leading provider of ultra-low latency trading solutions.”
