In 1984, two recent college graduates created a simple charting and quote page program to track instrument data on personal computers. This first venture, later titled “Neovest,” appealed to a broad audience in the financial industry and was a sudden success. As Neovest's customer base grew, its programmers added filtering technology designed to locate specific instruments based on price, volume, P&L performance, and other intraday and fundamental criteria.

In 1999, after substantial company growth and added ingenuity to the initial product, Neovest merged with a leading broker-dealer firm, which precipitated its launch as a leading equity trading and analytics platform. In 2005, Neovest, Inc. became a wholly owned and independently operated subsidiary of JPMorgan Chase & Co (NYSE: JPM). Over the years, Neovest continued to expand its global support functionality and asset classes. Today, Neovest provides connectivity to more than 340 global brokers on over 130 international equities, options, and futures markets, with multiple offices and datacenters on three continents.

Headquartered in Orem, Utah, Neovest is at the center of one of the United States’ most impressive, burgeoning technology hubs. Utah supports over 7,000 tech-focused companies, with technology comprising as much as ten percent of Utah’s annual payroll. Utah is ranked first in tech employment growth in the western United States and third in the country for entrepreneurship and innovation.

Utah’s highly skilled workforce is complemented by its multilingual capabilities, with over 130 languages spoken in daily commerce. Major universities throughout Utah’s largest cities estimate that the majority of its students are bilingual. Since its inception, Neovest has utilized Utah’s uniquely educated and skilled technologists to provide support to its customers in more than ten languages.

Throughout Neovest’s 30 years of operation, its products, services, and features have undergone far-reaching enhancements and forward-thinking development. Financial industries themselves have experienced seminal changes in technology, trading practices, and expansion in emerging global markets. Despite global shifts in instrument trading, Neovest remains a pioneering, inventive leader in the financial software industry.
