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?

YOU SIMPLY EXTEND IT TO RISK MANAGERS, DATA SCIENTISTS, SALES/BANKERS AND TECH MANAGERS

NEVERTHELESS...

RISK MANAGERS cannot chase traders nor algorithms with a tier two technology

DATA SCIENTISTS require a realistic Lab based on trading insights. And they should be able to throw their Python code into it at a minimum effort

SALES need timely recommendations based on sound signals from intraday to long run (standard Recommendation Systems are not enough)

TECH MANAGERS need to know how to efficiently deploy the previous modules within a central, steady architecture

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

RISK MANAGEMENT
We allow risk managers create their own algorithmic strategies to stress and control those of the traders real time. Boost liquidity risk management through the same architecture

Mobirise

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

SALES/PRIVATE BANKING
We allow them crucially enhance their recommendation systems with our market insights

AND WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU HAD ALSO FATHERED AN
A.I. TECHNIQUE THAT ACADEMIA EXPECTS TO BE ONE OF THE MOST IMPACTFUL 
IN THE DIGITAL ECONOMY?

Would you settle for a one-off or would you be slightly more ambitious?

YOU WOULD HUMBLY TRY TO PROVE IT AGAIN FOR REAL. AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN...

Machines can beat humans on many tasks. But humans & machines can beat machines on most of those. We proved it once, within Algorithmic Trading, through our Avatar Calibration. On top, augmenting humans too often leads to an equilibrium that minimizes the expert.  So, why not to augment the machines?

We find ways for the experts to inject their expertise and idiosyncrasy within the machines. As a result, not only machines depend on humans going forward but also we design new roles leading to a New Digital Economy: more profitable (doesn't waste the experts' acumen), more meritocratic (easy to filter those who add most value) and more human-friendly. All, underpinned by robust Game Theory equilibria that crucially locks-impact-in

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

OUR TRACK RECORD OF DOWN-TO-EARTH INNOVATION

Why us? In a world of overlap between Trading, Machine Learning and Technology, credibility is key. And ours is the result of a very focussed, long-run plan

Here a few highlights of our relentless passion for impact:

2001-2002: ALGORITHMS IN COMMODITIES

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

2005-2009: ALGORITHMS IN FIXED INCOME & EQUITIES

One of the first pioneers 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 US IB)

2010-2017: INNOVATION IN THEORY & PRACTICE

Entered the first cohort of the UK PhD Center for Financial Computing.

The Thesis was applied for real at a Tier Two bank. Its algorithmic architecture got the prize to the best trading platform in Europe. Its novel approach to A.I., Avatar Calibration (the first example of Augmented Machines) was selected by UK EPSRC for its major impact in the Digital Economy

Succeeded on the first cross-asset algorithmic transformation of the sell-side. Now, best-practice of the industry

2018-2019: PRODUCTS CREATION

We spent two years only devoted to developing the overarching technology needed to offer the suite of products that we wanted to start providing

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

Set out the first augmented machine on production

Set out the first algorithmic risk strategy that can be sent on-the-fly to supervise algorithmic trading strategies real time
