Building on a platform developed and tested by one of the world's leading hedge funds, the D. E. Shaw group launched Arcesium as an independent company in 2015. We received additional equity backing from our second seed client, Blackstone Alternative Asset Management, the world's largest discretionary allocator to hedge funds. Since then, Arcesium has grown to support more than $180 billion in assets with a staff of over 850 software engineering, accounting, operations, and treasury professionals.
The Arcesium team has decades of combined experience in the alternative asset management industry and knows how to meet the needs of our clients, including the requirement to adapt quickly in an ever-changing environment. We help our clients optimize their organizational footprint so that they can focus on generating alpha.
