Genesis rebuilds Neptune

platform in 6 months

The highly sophisticated platform is capable of processing over 1 billion messages per day


Neptune is a fixed income data distribution company connecting 30+ dealers to 80+ buy side firms on its platform with a mission to be a global leader in high quality axe data services.

Pre-intervention, Neptune provided its extremely successful service using outdated core technology that lacked rich features and scalability. It sought to deploy new capabilities but was limited by its platform.

Within six months, Genesis built a new platform from the ground up that has been processing ~1 billion messages per day since inception, significantly enhancing Neptune’s agility.

Since working with Neptune, we’re continuing to deliver new features such as portfolio trading and real-time analytics.

The Solution

Since the original go-live, Genesis has added multiple new features to improve user experience including API based data access, portfolio trading analytics, portfolio sharing and real time analytics.

The platform’s modern graphical user interface (GUI) enables traders, analysts, and risk managers to easily access data to make informed trading decisions.

Six-month turnaround

To expedite delivery and reduce delays, Genesis drew upon its fixed-income and market knowledge to ask the right questions—listening to, challenging, and double-checking information at every turn.
