About Us

HPR builds Capital Markets Infrastructure. Our technology powers the next-generation electronic trading stacks of global investment banks, clearing firms, asset managers, market makers and exchanges with a comprehensive suite of hardware and software solutions.

TECHNOLOGIES OF SCALE

As Cloud or Infrastructure-as-a-Service (“IaaS”) providers continue to advance into the financial services sector, established financial institutions are realizing they need to create similar offerings to remain relevant. Hence, they are increasingly looking for technology partners to arm them with the tools that are now required to compete.

HPR’s team is comprised of industry-leading architects and engineers with a vast array of required skills, including: Networking/Telecommunications, Silicon Design (FPGA), Electronic Trading Systems and High-Performance Computing.

RELENTLESS FOCUS

HPR has built a technology core that will drive product successes for years to come. Whether you require Direct Market Access, Real-time Risk Management, Market Data Delivery, Surveillance, Latency Measurement or Reporting, HPR is able to provide all of these services on a single unified platform.

HPR has become a leading financial technology player in the electronic trading space, now handling over 10% of the daily equities trading volume in the U.S., 15% in Australia and a large percentage on the HK/China Stock Connects. Since 2011, we have enabled our clients to substantially grow their businesses, and they are now taking our platform global; by the end of 2019, we will support over 80 markets worldwide.

OUR VALUES

SIMPLIFY

Simplicity must be an obsession if one is to build the world-class technology stack of the future. Financial firms are often pinned down under the weight of numerous technologies that have been mounting for years. Systems come and go. Technologies come and go. The result is a maze of applications that are difficult to support.

UNIFY

Simplicity alone will not solve the problem. Updating technology will not solve the problem. To truly succeed over time, companies must unify their myriad of applications and endless array of design patterns into a highly efficient framework.

LEAD

HPR’s vision is bold and forward-looking and lives at the cutting edge of technology. Our success is rooted in a core team that is fearless and willing to take on any challenge.

Our Team

No one else brings together our deep experience across a wide array of skill sets from telecom to software and hardware combined with unparalleled market micro-structure expertise.
