About Us



Our team of data scientists has been working together in financial markets for sixteen years. Both draw upon a 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, Ben and Pete have 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 their clients.


Ben and Pete provide daily commentary and data-driven analysis for institutional clients of Arbor Research & Trading. Their work is frequently featured in the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Bloomberg, and more.
