Through the Gissing Connect desktop connectivity platform,
it aims to deliver real time market data subscriptions and
publications to financial market professionals.
Market data specialist Richard Gissing is the
company’s chief technology officer. In 1991 he
founded Gissing Software, a market data contributions software
provider, which was bought by Reuters in 2008. Earlier this
year he formed Gissing Consulting.
That company, as well as technology start-up investor Firm
Economics, are the backers of Gissing Technology.
David Priestley of Firm Economics is executive chairman of
Gissing Technology, while Paul Watmough has joined from Thomson
Reuters as CEO.
Gissing Technology is headquartered in London with offices
in New York, Brazil, India and Singapore, so that it can
provide global support. It plans to open an Australian
operation this year.
