2012 PERACTON: A SMART SEARCH FOR INVESTMENTS Dublin, Ireland (March, 2011) New Tech Post. Trading in stocks and financial markets can be a complicated process. A cursory glance at the news at any time over the last five years would tell you that even the so-called experts have a tendency to get it wrong more often than not. Laurentiu Vasiliu, a researcher at the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI), at NUI Galway, founded Peracton to help both individuals and corporate multinationals negotiate the complicated and volatile stock markets. [...] The MAARS platform algorithms can analyse the hundreds of parameters, across thousands of stocks, to show any would-be investors what options most closely mirror their desired investment portfolio. If you are looking at US stocks on the main exchanges like NASDAQ, or the New York Stock Exchange,” explains Laurentiu, “Altogether there are maybe 4,000 stocks, and each stock describes up to 200 financial parameters.” For an investor who wishes to exercise due diligence in their financial dealings, the sheer level of detail involved in analyzing hundreds of stock options, renders it impossible to do so, “The human brain just can’t work in this way” he says.[..] Read more at:

2011 FINANCIAL MARKETS: ART TO SCIENCE DUBLIN, Ireland (September, 2011) -- Technology Ireland How analytics could be applied to solving massive realworld problems, is evidenced in the work of Galway-based spin-out Peracton. At the core of Peracton’s suite of products is a software algorithm called MAARS, which helps investors make informed decisions based on what is happening in the financial markets and on what companies on the stock exchange are declaring about themselves. “A stock has about 50 financial parameters attached to it for an investor to read,” says Laurentiu Vasiliu, CEO, Peracton. “ If you consider there are possibly 10,000 stocks on, say, the London and Irish stock exchanges, for somebody to read all that information is mind-boggling. The human brain just can’t do it. “Our software extracts this data, allows the user to pick financial parameters they want and within a second it is ranking the exact match or the closest fit for what the client wants from stock exchange data or funds data.” While now investment is more of an art, with managers finding it difficult to determine why an investor made a particular investment on a particular date, Peracton’s tool puts science into investment, which is as it should be, says Vasiliu. ends-- source: Technology Ireland, September/October 2011 issue
