Sofistar has been selected by a new Hong-Kong based investment manager to provide software automation to support statistical arbitrage trading. The project will see the delivery of a complete automation solution linking Matlab models to the Interactive Brokers execution venue and capable to support cash, derivatives and synthetic instruments in hundreds of underlying equities, with a throughput of up to 5,000 orders per hour. The client has selected Sofistar for its expertise in automation in the quantitative management space and for its familiarity with the Matlab and Interactive Brokers environment.
This new spread-sheet based solution allows users to automatically delta hedge specific options trades over multiple accounts in Interactive Brokers. The choice of technology was dictated by the end-user need to be able to adapt the order automation to other types of trades in the future with minimum impact and cost.
Sofistar has announced the start of a new project that will deliver a turn-key solution for the integration of R-based investment strategies with Interactive Brokers and IQ Feed. The client, a statistical and quantitative consultant to financial companies based in Toronto, requires two libraries that will enable traders and fund-managers using the R open-source code to incorporate their functionality with the IB API. This solution will also be extended to IQ Feed and will support the complete automation of historical data into R-based models. Managing Partner, Christopher Glur commented "This is a new development for Sofistar and an acknowledgment of the emergence of R as one of the favourite programming languages among the investment community".
Sofistar will take part to the first London Investment Fund Trends Conference to be held at the Lansdowne Club, 9 Fitzmaurice Place, London W1 5JD on Tuesday 19 March 2013 from 2:30 pm to 6:30 pm.

Max Butti will join three other distinguished speakers who will share their experience with new and alternative techniques to win new business in a challenging marketplace while building a bigger brand and generating more awareness in the process.
