Streaming market data vendor Caplin Systems has completed a second funding round with investments from Financial Technology Ventures and Elderstreet DrKC totalling £6.2 million.
FTVentures, a San Francisco-based venture capital company specialising in financial technology, has invested £5.5 million in the company, in a combination of new shares and existing shares.
Concurrently, Elderstreet DrKC, now part of Dresdner Kleinwort Capital, has invested £700,000, following on from an initial investment in 2000.
James Hale, managing member, FTVentures, says: "Caplin's RTTP protocol is a breakthrough technology that will change the way market data is delivered. The high calibre client-base including Nasdaq, NYSE, UBS Warburg and CME, combined with the healthy pipeline of blue-chip prospects point to a path of continued growth for Caplin."
