In 2017, QuantHouse made the news when Metori Capital Management started using the QuantFACTORY algo-trading development framework to automate its trading portfolio.

In late 2017, Horizon Software joined the qh API Ecosystem to enable buy-side and sell-side firms to benefit from high-capacity and ultra-low latency trading systems to complement or replace existing legacy trading infrastructures.

By joining the qh API Ecosystem, financial firms, as well as QuantHouse’s clients, will have easy, efficient access to trade on CMC Markets’ platform.

“Our clients have been asking us to give them the ability to access additional asset classes, so with this in mind we have been developing our new CMC Prime platforms and API technology”, said Anthony Edwards, Institutional Sales Manager, CMC Markets, “This will allow our institutional counter parties to directly access an extended range of instruments, all from a single provider.”

Joining the qh API Ecosystem will allow CMC execution services to be easily accessible by hedge fund and brokerage clients in more than 22 financial datacenters across the globe through the QuantHouse network.
