Opalesque Industry Update - After setting up the world’s first “Twitter Hedge Fund” in 2011, Paul Hawtin is back launching Cayman Atlantic at the WIRED Money conference in London on Monday 1st July 2013.
  • Cayman Atlantic is a world first investment management company that “unlocks hidden trading opportunities within real-time social media data”.
  • WIRED Money is a one-day conference exploring how money, banking, and finance are being disrupted by the most innovative minds today.
  • The Firm will be offering clients the ability to open Managed Trading Accounts (MTAs) with a minimum investment requirement of £100,000 GBP.
  • Our innovative technology, an analytics engine that transforms real-time social media data into trading opportunities, provides an event monitoring system for market-sensitive information, global situations and emerging trends.

  • The financial industry is fast realising the enormous value within social media data from networks such as Twitter and Facebook.
