Pat Kenny, “the most interesting man,” in interesting times

Executive Chairman and CEO

John Lothian News caught up with Pat Kenny, “the most interesting man in the world” according to John Lothian, at the FIA Boca 2022 conference in Boca Raton in March. Kenny is SVP of client relations for CQG, and he talked about CQG One, the company’s newest charting and analytics platform geared toward professional traders, and the effects of the covid pandemic on CQG’s business and on the industry.

CQG’s customers are mostly professional rather than retail traders, and they wanted a platform with “the analytics, the studies, the algos, and all of it,” Kenny said. CQG One is geared to those professional traders. 

With the CME coming out with micro products, and the Small Exchange’s micro products, however, retail traders are also flocking to CQG these days, Kenny added. “We write to almost every exchange,” he said. “We’re one of the few ISVs that does that.”

Business has skyrocketed through the pandemic, Kenny said. “It showed we have a stable product and a stable environment. As a whole, the industry has been tested too.”

CQG’s business forays into Asia are doing well, he said. “It takes a while to get your name out there, but CQG is finally getting out there.”

The Association of Futures Markets (AFM), of which Kenny is chairman, will be holding a conference in London on June 9, the day after the FIA IDX conference in London.
