Leonid Frants

President & founder

Before founding OneMarketData in 2004, Dr. Frants accumulated more than 15 years of financial software and data management experience building key analytical infrastructures for the proprietary Quantitative Trading and Program Trading businesses of Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley.

He joined Goldman Sachs in 1996 and joined Goldman's Equities Statistical Arbitrage group in 1998, where he contributed to developing trading strategies and implemented backtesting frameworks. 

Dealing with the stringent historical data quality needs of quantitative strategy research led him to conceive and build a dedicated team to build the comprehensive equities data management and data analytics solution which ultimately grew to serve the global needs for the entire equities division.

Prior to joining Goldman Sachs, Dr. Frants developed scalable client portfolio analytics solutions at Morgan Stanley.

Dr. Frants received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stanford University, and degrees in Computer Science and Mathematics from the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
