Toronto and Chicago (PRWEB) September 17, 2015
Q4 Web Systems (Q4), the leading investor relations SaaS platform, has announced its acquisition of Oxford Intelligence Partners (Oxford), a provider of innovative stock surveillance, market intelligence and quantitative trading analytics to investor relations professionals and institutional investors. Oxford operations will be merged into Q4’s Intelligence division.
Since Oxford introduced its quantitative trading analytics and predictive options intelligence in early 2015, the company has grown quickly, attracting many blue chip clients and establishing itself as the most innovative provider of stock surveillance and market intelligence solutions in the US. Merging these capabilities with the new Q4 Intelligence division and SaaS platform creates a new powerhouse in the investor relations and institutional investor markets.
“We have been working with Oxford since the beginning of 2015, with many of our team members having significant history in working together with Oxford’s leaders. From the outset of our relationship, I have been impressed with what they have accomplished,” said Darrell Heaps, CEO of Q4 “Combining the Q4 team with Oxford's analysts, proprietary datasets and data scientists will help bring the Q4 platform and solutions to an entirely new level. This is a transformational deal for Q4 and Oxford and we couldn’t be more excited about the future.”
Q4’s acquisition of Oxford further accelerates its mission of becoming the world's leading SaaS provider of capital markets intelligence and advanced communication solutions for public companies and institutional investors. Q4 products slated for near-term launch include next generation stock surveillance, predictive trading analytics and soon to be released intelligent targeting and CRM applications.
Oxford’s CEO Adam Frederick will join Q4 as SVP of Intelligence along with his team of best-in-class surveillance experts, quantitative data scientists and programmatic options traders.
