MarkeTopper Securities Pvt Ltd. is an India-based investment research & algorithmic trading firm founded in 2001. In its initial phase the firm focused on highly accelerated development of efficient engines for generating deep pools of trading strategies for multiple markets. These pools were then successfully deployed in National Stock Exchange of India over the next decade.
MARKETOPPER’ s dual objectives are constant improvement and rapid adaptability to ensure consistently superior trading performance. To foster a high degree of independent thinking and innovation, Marketopper has enabled an environment of widespread experimentation.
In order to bring varied experiences and approaches to the experimentation process the core team has been strategically selected from appropriately diverse backgrounds. Every team member is encouraged to be out-of-the-box minded and test out the most radical of ideas and concepts. We regard the ‘freedom to fail’ as a core pivot of the learning process and maximization of individual – and therefore organizational – potential.
