This week LeapRate spoke with Inovance CEO Tad Slaff, head of the upstart FX trading software vendor. Inovance’s cloud-based platform, TRAIDE, makes analyzing financial data easy and actionable. Individual traders select the data they want to analyze, and the software uses machine-learning algorithms to analyze it for them, then the trader is able to explore the patterns found by the algorithms.
The firm’s SaaS-based platform allows the 18 million active investors, and thousands of smaller financial institutions to compete with the deep-pocketed Wall Street firms. TRAIDE is offered both to traders as well as licensed directly to retail brokerages looking to offer a powerful differentiator to their offering. The latest brokerage to add the software as reported by LeapRate was Core Liquidity Markets.
CEO Tad Slaff told LeapRate: “My background is more on the math/data science side but I have been focused on applying those techniques to trading for the last 7 or so years. I’ve always been fascinated by the underlying mechanisms that drive the market and how they can be modeled; a problem that will never get old!
Our focus at Inovance is how we can combine human intuition with machine intelligence…Basically, how can we get the best of both worlds? And with TRAIDE we feel we are well on our way to doing just that.”
