Our Story

Our team of data scientists draws upon broad experience from years spent providing pattern recognition and risk management services to institutional investors, designing and managing a portfolio of algorithmic trading systems for futures markets, and years of providing data-driven analysis on financial markets.


Data science has seen tremendous growth in a wide range of industries, but many financial services firms remain bogged down in spreadsheets full of tabular data. For the past several years, Arbor's team has worked to find new ways of measuring and predicting the performance of financial markets and the economy. They take great pride in offering exciting new data sources and methods to our clients.
