We achieve quality results with our strengths in human resources, knowledge of financial theory and business, critical thinking skills, information and infrastructure technologies, and an appropriate research and management system to support them.
We are a group of talented individuals with a wide range of expertise and backgrounds including economics and commercial sciences, mathematics and physics, statistics and OR, (behavioral) finance, information processing (CS), and data science. These carefully selected members offer both individual and synergistic strength.
Financial Theories and Business Knowledge
For the thirty years since our establishment, we have been mainly engaged in research on financial engineering that is useful to the world of finance. Deeply rooted in our corporate DNA is the desire to produce results based on our practical knowledge of business and an understanding of the issues grounded in detailed knowledge of traditional financial theories.
We are conducting not only basic mathematical and statistical analyses and analytics, but also some of the first research that adopts data-driven analytical methods utilizing AI, machine learning, and text mining. We are actively collaborating with universities and research institutes in Japan and abroad in the exchange of information and human resources, as well as in the promotion of joint research projects in order to obtain the latest expertise in analysis and analytics.
As we secure various sources of voluminous quality data (big data), we are also developing a processing environment (the cloud, high-speed processing) to extract essential information from that data. Furthermore, we are actively testing proof of concepts (PoC) for new solutions through cutting-edge ICT technologies.
Research is conducted as sponsored research for our customers, or as mid-term to long-term strategic research which we believe will become highly influential in the near future. Strategic research takes on advanced and quite challenging topics, and requires repeated trials and errors. On the other hand, this research is very useful to raise motivation among our researchers, to improve their techniques and research skills, and to plant future seeds of research with customers. We assemble teams to tackle these research tasks, and are confident that this will generate synergies for even greater results that will exceed the sum of individual achievements. Furthermore, multiple internal review meetings are held frequently to allow for progress reports and the exchange of opinions and innovative ideas through researches, including those who are not directly involved in the project.
