We offer services on a project or retainer basis.
Benn left academia in the late 90s to help launch one of the first commercially available data mining platforms using genetic algorithms. He was then recruited by Weiss Multi-Strategy to institutionalize their quantitative infrastructure before moving into the newly created CRO role after the Sept 11 attacks. After seven years at Weiss he moved into a similar role at the CR Intrinsic Investors unit within S.A.C. Capital.
The democratization of financial data and the rise of robust third-party portfolio management software systems enabled Benn to launch an independent portfolio consultancy (Axtell) during the financial crisis with the goal of providing alternative asset managers access to best-of-breed solutions for risk and portfolio management. Alpha Theory acquired Axtell in 2011 to form Alpha Theory Advisors where client engagements include a broad array of services from outsourced risk and portfolio consulting to data science platform design and development.
