The primary network and platform for European wholesale energy markets to acquire a leading systematic and technical charting solutions provider

May 11, 2021 (LONDON) – Trayport Limited (Trayport), a wholly owned subsidiary of TMX Group, today announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Tradesignal, a leading provider of rule-based energy trading and analysis solutions.

“The acquisition of Tradesignal is another milestone in our growth strategy, as we continue to focus on meeting the increasing market demand for data and analytics, to support quantitative and automated approaches to trading,” said Peter Conroy, President, Trayport. “Tradesignal complements Joule, and combined with Trayport’s Data Analytics and autoTRADER solutions, will further enhance decision making and the trading experience. A large number of major European energy market participants are already existing Tradesignal clients, and we look forward to working with the Tradesignal team to offer mutual and new clients the opportunity to harness a full suite of interconnected data & automated trading tools.” 

Tradesignal provides traders, portfolio managers and analysts the capabilities to develop, test and optimise multiple trading strategies, including short-term intraday modelling to yearly portfolio basket based approaches. Users have the ability to create their own strategies or use one of the hundreds of predefined out of the box strategies to maximise opportunities and manage risks. 

“We are excited to announce this agreement with Trayport, allowing us to further integrate our leading-edge and award winning solutions across Trayport’s product offering,” said Jürgen Mittelstaedt, Managing Director, Tradesignal. “We share a long history of successfully working together, first as a Certified Solutions Provider and more recently as the provider of software that underpins Trayport’s existing Joule charting capabilities. This announcement will serve to further strengthen the benefits users receive.”  

The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2021, subject to customary closing conditions and is not subject to regulatory approval.
