Global Hedge Fund Builds Enterprise-Wide Data Management System in Mathematica
January 7, 2010 — Wolfram Blog Team
When the founders of the global hedge fund EQA Partners, LP, wanted to build a comprehensive system for handling all functions of their company, they chose Mathematica. In this video, EQA’s Chief Risk Officer Philip Zecher describes how using Mathematica improves their ability to quickly analyze market conditions and respond to investors’ data requests, and reduces data errors.
Using Mathematica‘s full programming language, which Zecher says “seriously cut down” development time, and webMathematica‘s deployment options, EQA has built a comprehensive data and analysis platform that delivers quick and accurate information. “To be able to show clients the straight-through processing that we do is valuable to them from a confidence perspective,” says Zecher. “To them, it’s a very consistent system that gives them the numbers they want in a real-time fashion. And they’re accurate.”
