About


The leading provider of quant technologies

Our Story

SigTech offers future-proof quant technologies to global investors. Cloud-hosted and Python-based, the platform integrates a next-gen backtest engine and analytics with curated datasets covering equities, rates, FX, commodities and volatility. SigTech eliminates the expensive upfront costs of infrastructure build-out, giving clients an edge in alpha generation from day one.

The SigTech platform was originally built over seven years ago to manage systematic investments at Brevan Howard, which remains a SigTech client today. After the spinoff into an independent company in early 2019, the team has grown substantially and established SigTech as the leading provider of quant technologies.
