Building on a platform developed and tested by one of the world's leading hedge funds, the D. E. Shaw group launched Arcesium as an independent company in 2015. We received additional equity backing from our second seed client, Blackstone Alternative Asset Management, the world's largest discretionary allocator to hedge funds. Since then, Arcesium has grown to support more than $60 billion in assets from a number of leading hedge funds, with a staff of over 550 software engineering, accounting, operations, and treasury professionals.
Arcesium's technology is designed to optimize the daily and monthly middle- and back-office processes of alternative asset managers. The entire technology stack is built on the principles of master data management, incorporates modern API accessibility and data warehousing technologies, and is delivered to our clients via a web-based user interface. Our proprietary software is configured for each client to allow us to support the most complex operational demands, while also seamlessly integrating with each client's existing systems and infrastructure.
