Founded in 2003, SmartQuant Ltd develops end-to-end algo trading solutions for quantitative hedge funds and institutional trading groups. SmartQuant's mission is to provide emerging quant managers with an industrial strength strategy development, back testing, optimization and automation platform.


SmartQuant Introduces QuantController Solution

As the algo trading infrastructure grows along with the growth of the quant team and with more strategies being designed and backtested in the development environment (OpenQuant) and traded live in the production environment (QuantTrader), the efficient management of the distributed infrastructure becomes an important task.

The typical institutional setup includes several OpenQuant and QuantTrader instances, as well as additional server applications such as the QuantRouter, distributing the market data feeds between strategies and routing orders between the trading boxes and the (possibly multiple) brokers, and the QuantBase, capturing real time data into historical database and enabling the centralized management of the historical data. These components can reside on the same or different computers on the local network, run in the cloud or be co-located on the broker servers.

QuantController is a new server application in the SmartQuant family of products designed specifically to monitor and manage such a growing distributed trading setup and to enable additional reporting capabilities across multiple applications.

SmartQuant Releases QuantTrader Application

Paper and live trading of compiled strategies imported from OpenQuant as dll.

QuantTrader is a lightweight version of the OpenQuant designed specifically as a production deployment engine. It has the same paper and live trading capabilities, including portfolio and strategy monitoring, but does not offer the simulation mode or ability to change the code (strategy parameters can still be changed).

Once the strategy is defined and optimized in the OpenQuant integrated development environment, it can be compiled and exported into a package together with its relevant settings. This package can then be imported into QuantTrader and run in various production environments: from trading server, in co-location, etc.

Being lightweight, QuantTrader is also more robust and suitable for automated trading. The strategy source code is invisible, allowing for more secure deployment in shared environments such as co-location, or other situations where confidentiality is required.

Importantly, QuantTrader is also less expensive, which is particularly relevant when deploying potentially many different strategies produced by the same researchers.


SmartQuant Releases QuantBase 2.0 and QuantRouter 2.0 Products
