Continuing our series, Benzinga presents HedgeSPA
Benzinga: Why did you start your company?
HedgeSPA: HedgeSPA was created to level the playing field for professional investors. Today, there is a strong demand for sophisticated investment analytics, partly to better serve investors and partly to address post-crisis regulations. Often these investment analytics are kept hidden away, call it secret sauces if you wish, by the largest asset managers to defend their effective monopolies.
Benzinga: What do you think makes your offering unique in the Fintech space?
HedgeSPA: HedgeSPA is unique in that we offer top-tier quality investment analytics at incredibly affordable prices. Previously, users subscribe to platforms provided by vendors like BlackRock Solutions at minimum seven figures per year, which may simply not sell to any potential competitors. HedgeSPA aims to respond to the exorbitant pricing and exclusivity of other providers, by providing a faster, better and more affordable alternative.
Benzinga: What’s one thing you want users to remember your company by?
HedgeSPA: We want users to remember HedgeSPA for its quality and affordability. For example, the HedgeSPA platform allows users to reports analytics with a statistical confidence interval of 99.93%. Our cloud-based platform will be available to users at a subscription rate, meaning that users can start see the benefits without incurring the up-front cost of a massive integration project.
Benzinga: What drives you to get up every single day and work on your business?
HedgeSPA: To provide professional investors with sophisticated analytics that will allow them to have a fair shot against other industry giants will be both rewarding and gratifying. Having the chance to replace an effective monopoly on the buy side with something else will be a healthy change that will increase market opportunities for all.
Benzinga: How do you help people make money?
HedgeSPA: HedgeSPA helps investors make and save money through asset selection, portfolio rebalancing, decision/execution and reporting. The cloud-based platform uses fourth order analytics to provide users with sophisticated analytics in practically real time. This provides investors with the information they need to make an informed decision about their investments, allowing their portfolios to achieve out-performance never thought possible.
Benzinga: Do you offer investors any unique data points that can help their trading/investing decisions?
HedgeSPA: Our platform will help proven analysts and investment professionals harness the power of the Internet and massive computing, to achieve out-performance never thought possible. For instance, rebalancing recommendations that may reduce peak-to-trough drawdown by as much as 75% ahead of a major market storm; or achieving betting ratios of 68%, when typical fundamental managers bet in the 55% to 60% range.
