WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU HAD ONE OF THE BEST TRADING PLATFORMS OF THE INDUSTRY?

Would you use it only for trading or would you be slightly more ambitious?

SCITHEWORLD'S HIMITSU

The platform that orchestrates Trading, Sales, Data Science, Risk, Compliance and Cybersecurity while it learns autonomously

And more. Far more

CREATING OVERARCHING TECHNOLOGY AND AD-HOC SOLUTIONS IN THE NEW ERA

Whether through novel uses within a Trading Floor or across broader verticals within banking. Most financial businesses can benefit from our state-of-the-art approach to A.I.-driven web-apps based on Himitsu Tech. Nevertheless, we are the first success case of Himitsu Tech - a pioneer project for venture tech

We bring maximal flexibility (400+ parameters) traders to easily accomodate their ideas

We allow risk managers create their own algorithmic strategies to stress and control those of the traders real time

Mobirise

We provide data scientists a realistic environment for them to focus on Machine Learning

This very technology reaches Roboadvisory, RegTech, Cybersecurity and Fraud


AND MORE. FAR MORE

SEAMLESS INTEGRATION

That extra-piece your infrastructure and your business transformation is missing

ACADEMICALLY SOUND

Leverages Machine Learning as the most secretive A.I. players would. Further, we supervise PhD and MSc Theses at UCL

EXPERT-DRIVEN, DATA-ENHANCED

The expert shall be the corner stone of the whole transformation process - nevertheless, we are fathers to Augmented Machines

UNLOCKS TRANFORMATION

By considering all interests from our clients (traders, portfolio managers, risk managers, data scientists...) we align interests towards the same direction - nevertheless, this is the product we demanded when we were at their side

REGULATION AWARE

Enhanced model interpretability and cybersecurity natively embedded

RECYCLE

More than halve your digital costs going forward by orderly recycling code, and combining different providers within the platform (DIY, ourselves or 3rd parties)

MINIMIZE YOUR DEPENDENCIES

We do not want you to select our modules, signals or strategies if you do not believe we are your best provider. Hence, not only do we allow you to take as much control as possible upon the platform configuration (DIY) but also, we allow third parties to provide you with their services within it

AUGMENTED MACHINES

Days until we release the first results of Augmented Machines in Trading

WHY?

Our privileged and scarce experience lets us outstand

OUR TRACK RECORD

Why us? In a world of overlap between Trading, Machine Learning and Technology, credibility as pioneers is key

Here a few highlights:

2001-2002

Set up one of the first algorithmic trading desks for gas at a commercial company

2005-2009

One of the first to research on the role of bots in Finance (Kyoto University)

Doubled and quadrupled P&L at different trading desks from different Tier One Banks (commercial and IB)

2010-2017

Succeeded on the first cross-asset algorithmic transformation of the sell-side

Got the prize to the best trading platform in Europe

Avatar Calibration (Augmented Machines) selected by UK EPSRC for its Impact in the Digital Economy due to the novelty of its approach

2018-2019

Set out the first autonomous machine on production at a business (statement from a BigTech)

Set out the first augmented machine

Will be soon releasing the first algorithmic risk strategy that supervises algorithmic trading strategies real time

OUR INTUITION OF A GAME-CHANGING PROBLEM

Why now? Some time ago, we anticipated that many players in the industry were going to be at serious risk if they did not adapt to the new era at the right pace. These are more than half the industry nowadays

SciTheWorld's Himitsu, is the overarching technology that allows them to integrate A.I. as efficiently as possible and cope with the pace at which the most advanced have moved

20%

Traders' trust on Transformation propositions

Not enough parameters exposed, nor flexibility nor data value-add...

60%

Risk managers' sense of control over algorithmic strategies

Not enough theoretical chase nor practical audits before hitting the markets

70%

Data scientists' comfortability with the realism of their Lab

No realistic structure pre-defined for them to try their scientific propositions

Infrastructure design efficiency

Not enough Financial Computing expert support to IT managers

Unlocked impact

Not enough capacity nor willigness to collaborate

Survival probability

No adoption of the new paradigm > less competitive in more competed markets > less capacity to invest in adoption > wonder by sr management whether to keep the trading business

AND NOT SURPRISINGLY

BY 2019

42

% OF THE INVESTMENT INDUSTRY

Already recognizes that their main problem with A.I. is their capacity to integrate it in their systems

OUR COMMITMENT

FOR THE LAST 2 YEARS, WE HAVE CONSISTENTLY FOCUSSED ON BEING AHEAD OF THE INDUSTRY THROUGH OUR MODULAR TECHNOLOGY

FOR THAT LEVEL OF UNDERSTANDING AND EXECUTION, WE INVEST MORE THAN 3X OUR INCOME IN R&D

BEYOND PURE TECH

We leverage SciTheWorld's Himitsu to deliver
from Ad-Hoc Solutions to Transformation

AD-HOC SOLUTIONS

Our clients trust trespasses the standard challenges: it includes novel ones, never tackled before.

Previous projects we have worked on include:

· NEW BREED OF CONTROLS AND ACTIONS ·
For each line of defense, leveraging Machine Learning techniques and Advanced Trading Technology. Whether manual actions or systematic.

· ALGORITHMS AUDIT ·
Nowadays, risk managers require help to chase the consequences of the traders' algorithmic rationales. These theory audits are preferrably complemented by the practical ones included in the platform.

· REGULATORS ALGORITHMS APPROVALS ·
Both, Regulators and Banks, approach us to better analyse the suitability of a new, more data-driven algorithm, in the decision making process related to retail.

· GREEN ASSETS SYNTHETIC LIQUIDITY ·
By managing risk systematically and intradaily volume of certain illiquid assets can be increased by more than 30%

· CRYPTO INFLUENCERS ·
Detection and analyses of different bots at Twitter that attempt to affect crypto prices

· FX FIXING AND EQUITY CLOSE PREDICTION ·
Intraday forecasts to help derivative traders better manage their risks

· FIXED INCOME ISSUANCE ·
StatArb strategies and portfolio rebalancing around auction dates

· REGULATION COMPLIANT DATA ACCESS ·
Architecture for data scientists to access globally data in a seamless, automated way. Seamless integration, controlled by Compliance

· REGULATORY ANALYSIS OF HFT ·
Distinguishing good from bad High Frequency Trading to avoid market manipulation

· CYBER ANOMALY DETECTION ·
Outlier detection of standard activity across servers using billions of rows of information (Netflow data). Improvements in false positive detection exceeded x2

· CYBER CODE BOOST ·
Analysis of legacy code, redesign and strategic implementation - from data model to advanced use cases. Efficiency exceeded x3

· HOSTILE BID ANALYSIS ·
Analysis of the probability of large activist funds building up sudden exposure on a client's stock

· CEO PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS ·
Defense of a CEO's performance based on market expectations - discounting market impact from large players' expectations

TRANSFORMATION

Orchestrating a business Transformation is key. Everything ought to be considered and aligned: from Game Theory to state-of-the-art Machine Learning.

Ideally, the following steps will be taken orderly but, often, legacies, timeframes and the ambition of our clients require us to think of tailor-made shortcuts

1

Understanding

Financial agents have traditionally been very efficient due to the level of internal chase they have

Managers and key people within the teams need to gain judgement on the algorithmic ecosystem (yet not hard skills) in order to grant all views are considered when adapting to the new paradigm 

2

Ad-hoc path

Once you have judgement, we can scan your business distribution and your current architecture in order to advise on the different paths you may be able to take, their pros, cons and expected cost

3

Tactical

Once you have chased our different path proposals, advanced prototypes shall be set to test them out - time is key at this stage and many things ought to be parallelized. We can provide the technology and the team.

If poor prototypes are used, the decision making process will be highly compromised/ unrealistic

4

Audit

Once you have rolled-out onto your preferred architecture (whether including our tech or not) your algorithms (as black-boxes) shall be taken into a boxing ring in order to stress them before they hit production. This step is key to better understand them and minimize the largest of all risks in Algorithmization: operational risk. We have the ring and the boxers 

Regulators are particularly keen on this 3rd party quality assessment

5

Economies of scale

Once you know SciTheWorld’s technology, you can onboard further services to manage other digital strategies across verticals of your company

WE DO NOT DISRUPT FINANCE. WE ADAPT IT TO THE NEW ERA

DOWN TO EARTH INNOVATION

We are the result of a PhD Thesis at UCL's Computer Science Dpt, partially supervised by Renaissance Technologies and deployed for real at a modest bank. It wanted to prove that, in Transformation, judgement across Machine Learning, Trading and Technology was significantly more relevant than mere budget

And it proved it. On one hand, academically, it was selected by UK EPSRC for its Impact in the Digital Economy. And on the other, such modest bank won the prize to the Best Trading Platform in Europe (overcoming Tier One IBs)

And more. Far more

Mobirise

After having reached major transformational achievements within incumbents and academia, our co-founders decided to take their next professional challenge: High Risk-Reward Innovation. They resigned their senior positions to set up their own Centre of Excellence (CoE)

The CoE was rapidly self-funded through consultancy and academic partnerships - SciTheWorld's expertise and vision was actively demanded by the industry at both cybersecurity and financial transformation

Furthermore, academia and supra-national agents, such are the WB or the IDB, started considering us state-of-the-art A.I. industry experts; and we even became "Hot Fintech" in different rankings - including private- around the world. As a result, we have, ever since, helped tier one banks, hedge funds and regulators face algorithmic challenges

Now, we are taking a step further, we want to leverage our impact to clients and our CoE's evolution through Sergio's proprietary technology: Himitsu

OUR CO-FOUNDERS

They have the vision and the business accumen
