While we really like to cover fintech at large-in all its silos-including P2P, alternative lending, robo-advisors, insurtech, digital currencies and blockchain, amongst others, we wanted to focus this article on the trading sector. FIA – the Futures Industry Association – puts on an annual event each year in Chicago in October, and this year, their “Innovators Pavilion” will showcase 18 firms who have advanced technology in the trading sector over the past year.
They include: Bittrex | ChartIQ | Cloud9 Technologies | Hyannis Port Research | LMRKTS LLC | MayStreet LLC | Money.Net | Panalytics, Inc | PanXchange | QuantConnect | RealDay Options Corporation | SamurAI | Semantic Evolution | t0 | TopstepTrader | Ubixi | UCX (Universal Compute Xchange) | Volar Technologies LLC.
