Quant Capital, a London-based private investment firm focusing on quantitative trading strategies, has implemented financial software firm Aleri’s complex event processing (CEP) technology to boost the performance of its equities trading and achieve consistent low latency.
“It is imperative to employ real-time, rapid response technology solutions that allow us to meet the growing demands of today’s market and focus on what we do best, which is delivering quantitative investment strategies,” said Richard Schuhmertl, CEO of Quant Capital, in a statement. “In addition to speaking to a number of Aleri’s satisfied customers, we selected them for their powerful CEP engine and performance capabilities as well as added benefits like their visual optimisation features.”
Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Aleri, added, “The volatility and fragmentation of today’s markets present new trading challenges and Aleri’s low-latency platform helps address these issues through rapid implementation of new algorithms.”
Aleri’s technology allows clients to translate trading or order routing strategies into algorithmic trading solutions. The Aleri CEP platform provides visual modelling tools that enable trading firms to define the data flow, operations and computations that need to be performed against orders and market data for low-latency execution.
