AI in Institutional Investments
We are now at the start of a significant change in how technology will be applied to Institutional Investing. So far all the innovation had been focused on structured data, pricing, and execution. Most of these calculations were performed using traditional database technologies and statistics.

We are at the cusp of an exponential change now.
