Hiring Quant Developers to create effective algorithmic trading software is expensive both in terms of time and budget. Its development requires highly skilled people in mathematics, statistics, computer science and in the financial markets. Some industries, such as agriculture or power have not yet embraced this technology. Atakama offers the possibility to easily access to highly effective strategies for a fraction of the cost of developing in-house. Plus, for large customers can buy the ownership of the algorithms, and get a consulting service from the developer. This is a very attractive solution for these companies since they can have their existing resources and expertise to implement and enhance tested highly effective strategies.
Developers code their investment strategies in Atakama’s platform using a robust engine developed totally in-house. There they can create and backtest their algorithms having access to all the necessary resources they may need. The data comprises news feeds, company fundamentals, macroeconomic indicators and price data coming from the exchanges. Once the algorithms are running and back-tested, Atakama runs a set of internal tests. The goal is to ensure that the strategies can outperform a set of benchmarks to ensure profitability and controlled risk.
