LEVERAGING TECH TO UNCOVER ALPHA
WHAT WE DO
AlphaLab Capital is a leading provider of technology for quantitative trading. Each day, our infrastructure and algorithms enable traders to supply billions of dollars of liquidity to major exchanges around the globe. Our name derives from the term "alpha" which in finance means "excess returns beyond what is expected". It is a measure of an institution or individual's ability to outperform. Our mission is to deliver alpha to all our stakeholders.
By crafting algorithms with high sharpe ratios and low volatility, we deliver consistent financial alpha. By enabling liquidity in niche & emerging asset classes, we improve market efficiency and ease the flow of capital for people worldwide. By constantly innovating our management practices, we cultivate a workplace where each employee has the opportunity to grow and outperform. And by investing in startups and philanthropy, we aim to improve opportunities in our local communities.
