Rapid Alpha provides participants in the Capital Markets with alpha generating solutions that leverage advanced technologies (CEP, machine learning, parallel processing, and big data analysis) that may be utilized without requiring substantial technical knowledge.

Our solutions focus on three areas:
- Post-trade risk management.

- Quantitative and “quantimental” research and strategy development.

- Low latency trading automated trading systems utilizing machine learning algorithms.

Alpha Sentry is our CEP based post-trade risk management application. Utilizing Alpha Sentry risk manager can implement multi-tier risk limits at the account level, user level, and product level that evolve with the changes in the underlying P/L. Risk managers can automate liquidation, trade-sizing limitations, drawdown restrictions, tradable products, and time of day restrictions… to name of few of the functionalities.

Alpha Foresight is our quantitative and quantimental research and strategy development platform. Alpha Foresight is cloud based and leverages a parallel processing architecture providing extremely fast calculations and statistical analysis on user defined queries posed to the calculation engine through intuitive GUIs (we call it linking “visual logic blocks”).

Alpha Matrix is our low-latency automated trading system platform. This platform is a hybrid application with cloud based components and components that run locally on the user’s box. Alpha Matrix allows users to create, train, test, and deploy sophisticated automated trading systems using several machine learning algorithms (while not as fun, users can also develop systems using conventional mathematical operations, statistical methods, Boolean logic, etc…) by interacting with extremely intuitive GUIs. No knowledge of programming is required. However, for those that are technically inclined there is the option to interact with application through a command-line.
Rapid Alpha was founded by two veterans of the Financial Industry who have 40+ years of combined experience in Capital Markets Technology and Proprietary Trading. Our CTO developed the first webpage based order execution system in the United States for futures and commodities contracts and the CME’s first quote application for their website. He went on to become the CTO of one the largest option market making firms in the world and one of the founders of Ragnarok Systems.
