ACTIV Financial, a market data solutions provider for market makers, hedge funds, brokers and trading systems, has closed a reported $23.5m venture capital round with Bessemer Venture Partners.

ACTIV will use the proceeds to drive new customer acquisition, power continued product innovation and meet the escalating market demand for quality, cost-effective and ultra-low latency market data solutions, the company said.
