Quantopian chooses TORA for multi asset OEMS
TORA, provider of the industry’s most advanced cloud-based order and execution management system (OEMS), has today announced that Boston based Quantopian has selected TORA for its multi asset OEMS. Quantopian chose the TORA OEMS due to its industry leading functionality, interoperability with other systems and compliance coupled with a high standard of on the ground support and professional services resources.
“The TORA OEMS ticked all of the boxes relating to our full end to end workflow needs” said Marc Volpe, Quantopian CFO. Mr. Volpe added, “TORA was extremely responsive during the entire evaluation and onboarding process.

We look forward to working with Quantopian to address their current workflow needs and to keep pace with changing needs as markets evolve.
