Alpha Streams



We're proud to be running a series of competitions focused on Alpha Streams development solicited by specific client funds. Alpha Streams clients provide a profile of algorithms they'd like to license and the community has a chance to submit matching algorithms and win immediate cash prizes for their submissions.

Intellectual Property

Algorithms submitted to a competition remain your intellectual property. The sponsoring client is allowed a 90-day first option for an exclusive licence from the end of the competition. After the 90 day window they can be licensed through the alpha market to any participating institution.
