The choice of institutional quant teams

Our clients require pristine, dependable data and precision-focused backtesting. A portion of our suite of tools and data is now accessible through a modular API. This grants you the opportunity to try out a subset of our capabilities before committing to the platform, and facilitates the integration of SigTech functionalities with other applications.

Backtest with unparalleled accuracy

Our backtesting framework offers an exceptionally precise simulation of real-world trading scenarios. Backtesting inaccuracies can lead to missed opportunities and inaccurate cost projections, undermining your research. At SigTech, we incorporate event-driven, point-in-time, and remodeled slippage approaches into our backtesting strategy, meeting the standards of clients and safeguarding against the pitfalls of overfitting models.
