15 Professional services

In addition to IQML being offered as an off-the-shelf software program, advanced Matlab consulting, training, and program development are being offered. With close to 30 years of professional Matlab programming experience, including extensive finance/trading-related development in the past decade, we offer top-of-class Matlab consulting, with a particular emphasis on the financial sector.

In particular, we have a lot of experience integrating quality production-grade Matlab programs with online brokers (e.g. Interactive Brokers (IB), CQG, CFH FIX), data-feed providers (e.g. DTN IQFeed, Bloomberg, Reuters, Trading Physics), websites (e.g. Finviz, Nasdaq), databases (e.g. SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, SQLite), as well as Excel and raw-format data files. Programs were developed on multiple Matlab releases and all the Matlab-supported platforms: Windows, Mac and Linux.

We have completed countless life-cycles of software requirements definition, design, development, documentation, integration, testing, deployment, handover, maintenance and support.

Much of our work derives from the financial sector: We developed custom software for a commodities fund in a Geneva bank; a backtesting and analysis program for a large bank in Chicago; a currencies trading program for a hedge-fund in Malta; data-analysis products for financial services firms in New-York; a portfolio risk/exposure analysis program for an Israeli investment advisor; a charting GUI for a San-Francisco hedge fund; and semi- and fully-automated algo-trading programs for multiple clients around the globe.

Development is typically done remotely; onsite consulting/development is also possible upon request, or a combination of remote work and onsite visits.

You can see a small sample of programs that we have developed below. Additional samples can be seen on our consulting webpage.164

Anything developed under private consulting will be kept confidential and will not be disclosed to others. You will retain full IP ownership of anything developed for you.

Most of our revenue comes from returning or long-time clients. We will be happy to provide references of satisfied clients in US or Europe. With such an impressive track record, you probably already know some of them.
