How TAQTIQA™ has come to be

About Us

Motivated by Experience

  • Finance
  • Market microstructure

Mark founded TAQTIQA™ to eliminate a sizable barrier-to-competition preventing individual traders, analysts and researchers from conveniently accessing and utilizing comprehensive records of financial market trading activity.

TAQTIQA™ is the finance sector’s only market data vendor that provides scalable, pay-as-you-go, streams of complete trade and quote datasets. No technology lockin. No massaging. No filtering. You get the full information content of all trades and quotes for all symbols/tickers.

Prior to founding TAQTIQA™, Mark was a member of the Business Faculty (Finance) at the University of Sydney. Previously he served as a member of the Business Faculty (Finance) at the University of Western Australia, where he completed his Ph.D. in Finance Supervised by Prof. Ross Maller.

Mark’s thesis developed a time series specification test, analysed its small sample properties, extended a random variance option pricing model and empirical analysis of tick-by-tick data. His research interests are in quantitative finance with particular interest in market-microstructure.

While at UWA Mark designed one of the first web based course management websites, a market niche that came to be known as Learning Management Systems. He also wrote and managed a distributed computing application that ran across 300+ computers.

TAQTIQA™’s product offering and architecture build on these experiences to provide both individuals and enterprises access to a cost effective, robust and scalable streaming data services.
