Co-founded in London in 2012 by CEO Stu Taylor, formerly of UBS's fixed-income business, Algomi in 2015 introduced Honeycomb, a network for aggregating data and facilitating trades in the bond market. By September 2016 more than 200 buy-side firms had signed on to Honeycomb, connecting to 15 global banks with more than 10,000 indications of interest averaging $7 million. Further validation came in November when Euronext announced it would rely on Algomi's technology in a new multilateral trading facility. Their ten-year joint venture, capitalized by Euronext with $2.3 million, "is evidence of the commitment by both sides to improving the European corporate bond market," Taylor, 44, says.
On March 3, Euronext announced a deepening of the relationship with a $10 million strategic stake in Algomi and plans for North America and Asia-Pacific expansion. "The initiative will allow us to bring Algomi's unique bond information network to new parts of the credit market," Taylor says.
