In so many ways, 2020 has been one giant stress test.

Spikes in market volumes and volatility, upheavals to the way we all work and live, and the ongoing tests of BCP policies are a few of the extraordinary challenges we’ve all faced. Against this backdrop, it’s comforting to know our efforts over the past eight years have paid off. Our ability to keep running smoothly and meet client demands through the recent turmoil has proven the merit of our approach, both to building a technology platform and a team.

While our work continues, it’s safe to say MayStreet has reached a new level of maturity. Our platform is the embodiment of this maturation. And our new brand and website www.maystreet.com, which we’ve launched today, are the outward manifestation. We hope you’re as excited as we are to see everything come together.

Momentum

Late last year, we assumed the role of market data provider for the SEC’s Market Information Data Analytics System (MIDAS)

It was tempting to see that moment as the culmination of years of development. But really, it marked a new beginning. If anyone still needed reassurance the way of the future is a cloud-based market data infrastructure platform built on the latest software and hardware, that was it.

Since then, we have been talking with dozens of major industry players about how we can serve their enterprise-wide needs. It’s clear there’s a sea-change underway, and we’re extremely well-positioned to help market participants of all types—banks, market makers, quantitative investment firms, traditional asset managers, trading platform vendors, regulators and others—navigate it.

Adding value to volatility 

It’s one thing to survive a market shock. It’s another to learn from it and be ready for the next black swan. No one can see the future, but it’s not hard to imagine there are more major market disruptions headed our way as the global impact of the COVID crisis continues. (And note you can analyze market volumes and message traffic with our new visualization tool http://viz.maystreet.com/.)

Having the capacity to easily review performance during these tumultuous times is vital for preparing to handle large swings in risk in the future. Making sure that everyone across an organization has access to the same high-quality data is key to forming a consensus and coordinating a response.
