History of Exegy

Building on
Continued Innovation

Exegy was created to commercialize hardware-accelerated computing technology developed at the School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. The company used field-programmable gate array (FPGA) technology to develop ticker plants—appliances that normalize, enrich, and filter real-time financial market data. Continued product improvements have led to over 129 domestic and international patents.

In addition to technical innovation, we recognized the need for industry support in capacity planning, partnering with the FIF to publish real-time measurements of market data feed rates. Our output, MarketDataPeaks, encourages more robust design of trading infrastructure and electronic markets overall.

Who we are

Leading the Way for Market Data Solutions

Exegy has broadened its suite of products, expanding solutions for delivery of real-time market data and adding historical and predictive solutions. Signum, our suite of AI trading signals, delivers millions of signals synchronously with real-time data, demonstrating how machine learning can optimize strategies and price discovery. While we’ve built our reputation on enterprise-ready and ultra-low latency solutions, we’ve also developed cost-conscious alternatives for a wider span of broker-dealers and hedge funds whose needs for fast, high-quality market data can’t be dismissed.

With decades of experience, our skilled global team is committed to developing custom market data solutions for clients. We are headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, with offices in New York, London, and Hong Kong. 

Exegy is led by financial market and engineering innovators. Throughout Exegy’s history, we have propelled the development of new market data solutions, from pioneering trading technology to developing affordable alternatives that meet your needs today and efficiently scale to grow with your business.
