Institutional Scorecard: Quotron, ADP Slug It Out For Non-Trader Desktops


As several top institutional brokers assess their quote-terminal needs, the distribution of the non-trader market between ADP and Quotron hangs in the balance.

Investment bankers, equity researchers and other non-trading staff at top national institutional firms more likely than not currently use Quotron Q1000 service for quotes and news. The most notable exceptions are users at Bear Stearns & Co. and First Boston Corp., with service from ADP, and Morgan Stanley & Co., with its own RTQuotes.
