DescriptionHedgeSPA was recently named by Forbes Magazine as an emergent "industry vertical" cloud company in investment analytics. (http://hedgespa.com/home/?p=3072) The company is founded by a former award-winning managing director at BlackRock in New York City, and has received global media attention from the likes of the BBC and Stanford Magazine. We use high performance computing techniques to deliver state-of-the-art investment analytics and market scenarios on an affordable platform to seasoned buy-side professionals. Our solution pays for itself by automating many day-to-day tasks essential to senior investment professionals (from asset selection to scenario construction to investor reporting) while improving accuracy and therefore significantly enhancing credibility to end investors. On the R&D front, our research has been presented at highly recognized venues including the Russian Academy of Sciences, the American Economic Association and the American Statistical Association, and we are also known for building collaborative relationships with leading research organizations as a way to maintain market and thought leadership.
The company currently operates in San Francisco Bay Area and Singapore, and will be interested in speaking to internship candidates to build up our talent pipeline. In fact, our training program has placed so many internship graduates into top global investment and private banks that we have been approached by the relevant Govn’t agencies to find out more information about our training.
