Founded in 1993, Quote.com was one of the first financial portals. Quote.com provided stock quotes; detailed market data on options, commodity futures, mutual funds and bonds; real-time business news; market analysis; balance-sheet data; and company profiles.
In 1997, Quote.com and ClariNet Communications forged an alliance to provide financial market data, including news, quotes, charts, research and analysis over ClariNet’s online news services.
In 1999, Quote.com became part of the Lycos Network when Lycos, Inc., an Internet portal based in Waltham, MA, acquired Quote.com. Quote.com was among the top five investment information sites on the web at that time.
Known as the Lycos Finance division, Quote.com marketed financial content and trading tools to active traders and individual investors, including the subscription-based QCharts and LiveCharts services that provided real-time streaming data.
In 2006, Interactive Data Corporation, a provider of global financial market data and analytic tools to institutional investors, active traders and individual investors, acquired the assets of Quote.com and certain other related assets from Lycos, Inc.
On June 21, 2013, Daniel Wesley, a successful entrepreneur and business leader, purchased Quote.com and became its President and CEO.
