Alpha Theory System Requirements

Please note the following System Requirements:

Alpha Theory is currently optimized to run on desktop-class machines and requires significant computing power. System performance can also be impacted by large amounts of Fund, Asset, Custom Field, Checklist, Notes, or Scenario data. We are designing and building a next-generation version of Alpha Theory that will be better optimized for mobile devices, tablets, and low-power portable laptops. If you need assistance determining if your system meets these specifications, we would be happy to help. Alternatively, we can offer Excel Connect, API, and reporting support to help meet your usage needs.
