9 December 2020 / Oakland, California – Quincy Data powered by McKay Brothers was named Market Data System of the Year at the 2020 FOW International Awards today.

Stephane Tyc, co-founder of Quincy Data and McKay Brothers: “We are elated to be recognized as the Market Data System of the Year by FOW. In a volatile trading year, financial firms are realizing the tremendous value of low latency market data in meeting their best execution obligations and managing their risk. Low latency market data is now used across the spectrum of banks and hedge funds that trade electronically.”

Bob Meade, co-founder of Quincy Data and McKay Brothers: “It’s an honor to be acknowledged by FOW for the Market Data System of the Year. We are still hard at work to squeeze every bit of latency from our services. And we’ll continue to work with our clients to distribute the most important market data at the trading centers that matter the most to them.”

Quincy Data is recognized as the leading distributor of extremely low latency market data, utilizing the microwave networks of its sister company McKay Brothers. Together they have leveled the playing field for access to the most up to date market data. Quincy Data distributes more market data from key exchanges globally than any wireless market data provider. In 2020, Quincy Data significantly reduced QED’s latency from Illinois to New Jersey and added both Mahwah-sourced ETFs and Secaucus-sourced Cash Treasuries to the QED line-up. The Quincy Data website provides a full listing of the instruments it redistributes via QED, as well as points of presence and prices.

The Quincy Raw Data (QRD) service distributes US equity market data in the native formats from the three largest exchange groups in the New Jersey. Last month the company announced QRD’s deployment between the two largest US futures exchanges located in Aurora and Chicago, Illinois. The Quincy Protected Data (QPD) service offers the same exchange data feeds as QRD, combining the lowest latency wireless with fiber to ensure reliability. McKay Brothers also offers three types of private bandwidth on the metro routes: Prime Bandwidth (the lowest latency), Full-Featured Bandwidth (allows for fragmentation and re-assembly of large messages) and Arbitrated Bandwidth (which offers a built-in fiber back-up).

In 2020, the company introduced the Quincy High Frequency (QHF) service powered by Raft Technologies. QHF is transatlantic market information service that is the lowest latency commercial service from the futures markets in Illinois to European exchanges. QHF redistributes market information on a narrow set of US-sourced futures contracts utilizing Raft’s transport technology in combination with Quincy Data’s existing market data distribution infrastructure.
