Our company

The leading provider of quant technologies

SigTech’s award-winning platform ingests, cleans and validates financial data, and provides the tools to research, build, and deploy customized strategies – giving an edge in alpha generation. 

SigTech

Specializing in macro strategies and cross asset allocation with operationally-ready datasets across a wide range of financial instruments.  

SigTech eliminates the expensive upfront costs of infrastructure build-out, giving clients an edge in alpha generation from day one.

The SigTech platform was originally built over eight years ago to manage systematic investments at Brevan Howard, which remains a SigTech client today. After the spinoff into an independent company in early 2019, the team has grown substantially and established SigTech as the leading provider of quant technologies.
