CHICAGO, IL - February 7, 2017 - Today, Barchart, a leading provider of market data and financial technology, has announced the date for FinTech Exchange 2017 (, their annual event which focuses on technology within financial markets and trading. Back for its third year, FinTech Exchange 2017 will be held on April 27th at VenueSIX10 in downtown Chicago, and will feature presentations and roundtables from over 20 innovative firms during this all-day, expanded event. Presentations will focus on a variety of topics including machine learning, exchange technology, data analytics and visualization, tick data management, big data and artificial intelligence, cloud security, market data and trading software.

“Over the past few years, financial technology has taken our industry by storm and through our FinTech Exchange event, we have been able to present the latest on these innovations,” said Mark Haraburda, CEO of Barchart. “While many other FinTech events focus largely on consumer facing applications and services, our event is geared towards the financial markets and trading, which appeals more to the institutional and professional crowd. Overall, our focus on financial markets and trading related technology is a major differentiator,” added Haraburda.
