About Us

Portfolio management reinvented.

What We Believe

  • Off the shelf is off the mark

    No two investment firms are the same and neither are their technology needs.

  • Support by domain experts

    Investment professionals should be serviced by technologists with buy/sell side experience.

  • Relationships not transactions

    We partner with our clients with an eye towards the long term.

Our Engagement Approach

Each client engagement begins with our team of domain experts sitting down and understanding the key aspects of your business including: the asset classes you trade, the trading strategies you employ, your specific workflows. We then source components from the Motion Platform and rapidly assemble your unique instance of the Motion Platform.

Our Approach

We deliver the functionality you need today on an extensible platform that evolves with your business.
