Portfolio news: Portfolio companies AquaQ and Alveo announce strategic commercial partnership

A specific deliverable of the relationship is the integration between Alveo’s Prime data mastering and data quality management solution and AquaQ’s kdb+ data capture solution, TorQ to create ‘Prime-kdb+’ integration.

News

We’re delighted to share news of a strategic commercial partnership in advanced data management and analytics for the financial services industry between AquaQ Analytics and Alveo. The cooperation builds on the two companies’ extensive experience in working with banks and asset managers globally.

Building on AquaQ’s TorQ offering and experience with kdb+, Alveo and AquaQ have created bi-directional integration which allows customers to easily take mastered pricing and reference data from Alveo’s data mastering solution into Prime, into kdb+.

This integration addresses different use cases across the trade lifecycle, including independent valuation, trading, liquidity assessment, execution quality monitoring, and risk factor preparation.

Conversely, tick data histories and trade data kept in kdb+ can be accessed by Prime to provide further depth and context behind its independent valuation, risk factor creation or data quality management processes supported through its Ops360 user experience.

Ronan Pairceir, CEO and Co-Founder of AquaQ commented, ‘Alveo is our first partnership since Sovereign’s recent investment. We are pleased to work together with the Alveo team to help our customers address their financial data integration and analytics challenges. Solid and scalable data integration with clear lineage and demonstrable data quality has rapidly become a must-have. Alveo’s strength in price and reference data mastering and integration complements our expertise.’

Mark Hepsworth, CEO of Alveo said, ‘We are very happy to integrate with the AquaQ team. We share clients around the world and AquaQ’s expertise in data science use cases and database technologies complements Alveo’s solutions. All business processes in financial services are becoming increasingly data intensive and our cooperation addresses the requirements customers face in keeping abreast of mounting data volumes as well as processing requirements.’

Alveo and AquaQ are both Sovereign backed portfolio companies. You can find out more about our partnerships here.
