_ We are Star Beta Technologies 

Making digital asset markets more efficient

Carving out the most scalable strategies from an established Quantitative Trading Firm

_ What We Do 

Our algorithms provide liquidity and aid in price discovery to reduce and profit from the inefficiencies in the fragmented digital assets markets.

We believe in the importance of thoroughly understanding the products and strategies we trade and to be able to rationalise why we deserve to earn money by participating in those markets.

We also believe that all markets are constantly changing and that to survive we must not only adapt our strategies but embrace the technological advances that can give us an edge.

_ Foresight 

Our mission is to be a leading quantitative investment manager that designs and implements unique statistical arbitrage models to take advantage of opportunities in the digital asset markets, generating superior risk-adjusted and market-neutral returns to investors.

Our strategies are delta neutral, meaning they are indifferent to market direction, capturing temporary inefficiencies across multiple digital asset exchanges.
