VisualStructure uses proprietary intelligent algorithms (2 patents pending) and machine learning to find the optimal way of implementing a view on an underlying (e.g., a stock price). It has a unique graphical user interface that allows the user to interact in a new way in financial markets: Effectively, the customer is able to design his own investment product, and the algorithm finds the best, cheapest, and most efficient way of building this product. Lead by Prof. Semyon Malamud, VisualStructure is a spin-off from the renowned Swiss Federal institute of technology (EPFL), and has won some awards and grants.
It could be described as a search engine for finance, finding the best combination of financial instruments to implement views in in the most robust and efficient way. Applications can be in several domains: professional hedge fund managers that need an edge, retail clients that want to get better, more cost-effective products and asset managers that want to compare structured products. Unique visualization tools make highly sophisticated investments and most advanced algorithms accessible to everybody; no knowledge of derivatives is required. This opens up a road to huge market growth, with millions of potential new clients who were afraid / did not understand before.
