Zurich, 7 February 2018 – OpenMetrics Solutions LLC, a spin-off from ETH Zurich, develops ground-breaking algorithms for the reliable anticipation of financial markets crises

OpenMetrics Solutions has developed a series of algorithms which facilitate the identification of potential crises on financial markets faster – and more reliably – than the methods available to date. The underlying mathematical methods were developed and tested in depth over the past five years, at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at ETH (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) Zurich, the renowned Swiss university for science and technology.

In contrast to other methods, the OpenMetrics algorithms work reliably – like a Swiss watch – even for very long time series and different markets.

Risk indicators based on these algorithms provide concrete parameters facilitating the active adjustment of financial portfolios. Using these indicators, financial markets participants can efficiently supplement and sustainably optimise their existing risk management. Used correctly, this allows for significantly reduced financial markets losses, protecting investors' capital.

Typical target groups for these methods include pension funds, investment funds, and operators of financial markets infrastructure. There is no need to implement the procedures on users' systems: OpenMetrics delivers the risk signals digitally (Software as a Service – "SaaS"), on a monthly or weekly basis, and customised to each client.
