Howard Getson, CEO, Capitalogix Trading

Capitalogix created a revolutionary financial technology platform that uses Adaptive A. I. to maximize performance with real-time insights.

While most high-frequency trading focuses on using technology to make thousands of transactions in a short period of time, the Capitalogix technology performs millions of observations and only acts on the opportunities determined most likely to have an edge.

  • Comparing source, speed & edge – real-time market data, historical market data, macroeconomic data, public/private company data, alternative data
  • Alternative data, alternative use cases – what other applications may exist for alt data sets outside of alpha generation?
  • Other nascent data applications – do you see any immediate or future value for trading firms and fund managers in data from nanosatellites, drone imagery and Internet of Things?
