About the Companies?

Thesys Technologies (Featured Speaker: Anshul Anand, Sr.VP of Business Development)

Founded in 2009, Thesys is a high performance trading technology provider, focused on delivering low latency and compliance technology to financial market participants. They began by building trading APIs for electronic traders in order to democratize the field of financial technology. These platforms were engineered for maximal speed and enabled them to become early pioneers in low latency trading techniques. Next, Thesys turned to surveillance technology launching the world’s fastest software-based risk check platform to constrain the dangers of runaway trading algorithms, in addition to foraying into exchange technologies. Today, Thesys’ proprietary technology includes pre- and post-trade surveillance tools, low latency trading platforms, matching engines, and big data applications, such as those developed for the Consolidated Audit Trail (CAT) project for the SEC.
