NEW YORK — Acuris, the leading provider of financial news, data, research and analysis, has moved its New York headquarters from 330 Hudson to 1501 Broadway, in the heart of Times Square. Previously known as The Mergermarket Group, Acuris has moved on several occasions since its New York launch in 2003 to accommodate its remarkable growth. Acuris now resides on the biggest and literally brightest stage in NYC – Broadway!
The move to 1501 Broadway was instigated by the need to consolidate offices, support the company’s continued growth and its desire to be closer to its customers and industry partners. Additionally, the space that Acuris has acquired increases the square footage from the old office affording the company the ability to consolidate offices and expand its headcount.
Commenting on the move, Marc Katz, Managing Director, Americas at Acuris said: “We wanted the right space to accommodate our continuing growth. 1501 Broadway has the layout and facilities we need to house our people as well as our technology and data assets. It will allow us to promote our winning culture and provide our employees the best environment to produce the analysis, data and insight that markets depend on."
Aligned with the move, Acuris created a high profile advertising campaign that was showcased for the month of October next to the office on one of the biggest screens in Times Square and is currently displayed on the Long Island Railroad (LIRR) and Metro North Railroad. It is a fantastic welcome to the neighborhood and highlights the Acuris app that is available for download here: https://bit.ly/DZ1B9v
Acuris CEO Hamilton Matthews states, “Over the last 15 years, Acuris has organically grown from a bustling startup to a global company through pioneering journalism and research, entrepreneurship and continued product acquisitions and innovation, including recent procurements of the TIM Group and Creditflux. This move to our new office allows our employees across all products to collaborate even more and take advantage of our multiple synergies.”
