QuantHouse Automates Global Operations with Cloud-Based Robot Agents

QuantHouse, a provider of end-to-end systematic trading solutions including market data services, algo trading platform and infrastructure products, has completed the first phase of its infrastructure process automation programme using cloud-based robot agents.

It remains crucial during times of uncertainty and volatility that infrastructures operate reliably, efficiently and have the necessary scale to meet ever-growing volumes and message rates. Introducing increased levels of automation will enable the firm to rapidly add resources to a number of its in-house processes with minimal human intervention, using widely adopted and secure cloud native technologies that deliver automated deployment and monitoring tasks. It should also make it easier for QuantHouse to enter new markets that trade 24/7.

“QuantHouse has been designing and operating its own private low latency cloud for more than 15 years. With the general availability of advanced cloud management technologies, we are now leveraging those proven cloud native solutions to fundamentally review how we manage our operations,” says Chief Operating Officer Emmanuel Carjat. “Using robot agents allows our engineers to spend their time planning for the future while out-tasking standard maintenance and client implementation processes.”

The firm has onboarded a new hedge fund client on average every week over the past 15 months.
