Quant Capital, an independent private investment firm focused on sophisticated algorithmic trading strategies, has deployed complex event processing (CEP) technology from Aleri.

“Given today’s highly changing, fast-paced environment, 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 London-based Quant Capital Ltd., which also has offices in New York and Vienna. “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 optimization features.”

Chicago-based Aleri’s CEP platform provides visual modeling tools that allow trading firms to define the data flow, operations and computations that need to be performed against orders and market data for low latency execution. Algorithms can be implemented in hours or days, rather than traditional development cycles that take months, and they can be quickly deployed into production, according to the firm.

Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Aleri, noted that “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.
