About Xenomorph

Xenomorph is a successful and innovative software company working in financial markets, specializing in the development of systems to help its clients capture, cleanse and analyse key datasets such as market data and instrument reference data. Risk, trading, quant research and IT staff use TimeScape, Xenomorph’s analytics and data management solution, at investment banks, hedge funds and asset management institutions across the world’s main financial centers.

High performance data analysis combined with data transparency, data quality and ease of use

The origins of our expertise and technology can be traced back to the development of a high performance time-series database platform for Bankers Trust in 1995. Faced with the need to be first to market client quotes for complex derivatives on baskets of equities, bonds and foreign exchange, Bankers Trust worked with Xenomorph to develop our XDB temporal database. The system combined the best in high performance data analysis with data transparency, data quality and ease of use - principles which form the basis for the company’s work today.

A unified and consistent approach to data is vital for financial markets institutions

Following our initial work on historical time series analysis, our XDB temporal database has evolved over the years into TimeScape. TimeScape encompasses the high performance capture, cleansing, storage, integration, audit and analysis of reference, historical, real-time and derived data. One key feature of TimeScape is its future-proof data model, which supports any financial asset-class from the simplest instrument to even the most complex of derivative or structured product. With the unified approach to the management of both data and analytics that we have taken, our clients are able to utilize centralized, high quality and consistent data throughout all of the risk, trading, finance and back-office systems, enabling them to adapt and better cope with both the challenges of changing regulatory needs and an evolving business environment.

Xenomorph was established in 1995, has offices in both London and New York and is a privately owned company. Xenomorph is proud to have served our clients in financial markets over the past 14 years, and believes there is much more to be achieved in the field of analytics and data management. We look forward to helping our clients face the present and coming challenges of real-time trading and risk management across all asset classes.
