QUICK Corp. (株式会社QUICK) is a financial market information vendor headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. It was founded in 1971 as Quotation Information Center K.K. (株式会社市況情報センター), and changed its corporate name to the acronym "QUICK" in 1987.[1][2] QUICK has four offices in Japan (Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and Fukuoka) as well as overseas offices in London and Hong Kong.[3]

Services[edit]

QUICK developed one of the three major Japanese real-time news database services in the 1980s (along with Jiji News Wire and Nikkei Telecom).[4]

QUICK is responsible for calculating several Japanese financial market indices, including the well-known Nikkei 225 stock market index.[5] QUICK also publishes "QUICK Consensus" data based on corporate earnings and macroeconomic forecasts published by securities firms and analytics companies.[6]

In 2016, QUICK introduced AI-based technology to automatically "read" corporate news releases and instantly generate news reports based on the contents.[7] In the same year, QUICK announced a strategic equity investment in the US fintech startup Xignite, which provides cloud-based market data to financial institutions, with the goal of offering the technology to customers in Asia.[8][9]
