Due to Neptune’s trusted distribution channel, the data received is of a superior level, creating a higher quality composite. This is a new milestone for CME Group’s market data business, emphasizing value, accessibility and market transparency.

“The finance industry is quickly adapting to a new world of data. Evolving demand resulting in global spending on financial market data and analysis hitting record industry growth of $30.5 billion. Collaborating with CME Group allows Neptune to bring a composite based on high quality data to the market, helping firms with rising costs,”Grant Wilson, CEO of Neptune Networks Ltd
