G Capital Management, a macro hedge fund and investment manager, has selected Alphacet's Discovery platform, as its financial modeling platform. Alphacet is a developer of software solutions for quantitative analysts, portfolio managers and traders.

According to Alphacet, Discovery is an enterprise platform designed specifically for quants, traders and managers looking to develop complex multi-asset class financial models that combine multiple data sources and run on intraday data, down to the one second level. Discovery includes a pre-programmed library of more than 650 mathematical routines and allows users to develop models with or without coding.

G Capital Management selected Discovery for its flexible graphical user interface as well as its real-time interactive dashboard that allow users to monitor any derived output strategy series on a real-time basis through a scalable reporting tool.

Peter Gerhard, founder managing partner and chief investment officer of G Capital Management, said: “Although we are a fundamentally driven discretionary global macro firm, establishing a strong quantitative platform enables us to validate our fundamental views in real time and size opportunities appropriately. Alphacet provides us the tools to build this functionality effectively.”

Peter Sibirzeff, CEO for Alphacet, said: “Today’s financial institutions need quantitative modeling solutions that not only help users uncover new sources of alpha, but also help them decrease operational risk. We are excited that G Capital Management has chosen Discovery as its comprehensive financial modeling solution to increase the efficiency and transparency of its quantitative modeling workflow.”
