Today we put our first trading algorithm live under our new brand “Illuminati”.
Illuminati is the name of a secret society founded in 1776 in Bavaria, Germany that still today is linked to ruling the world as a sort of “fourth power”. The name Illuminati refers to the very secret society of quant developers that have been powering winning trading teams around the world in the last 10 to 20 years.
Quant algorithms have been powering Flow Traders, Optiver and IMC in the Netherlands, but also internationally firms like Rentech, Citadel, DE Shaw, Two Sigma, AQR and others. The core of these trading algorithms is built by a small, very global but high calibre group of quant developers.
Illuminati is now our fifth brand of trading algoritms, together with Boosting Alpha, The Noogieman, Dagobert Buck and Team Dakar. We aim to launch an additional 10 to 20 new trading algorithms under this new brand in the next 2 to 3 months.
