pattern and relationship
Hello, I'm Nico and Belove is my consulting practice. I develop data-driven software and quantitative decision-making systems. I have 12 years of experience developing quantitative equity investment systems in Paris and London.
I'm currently working on text recommendations based on latent semantic analysis. I am developing “full-stack” with Clojure and am targeting serverless deployment environments.
I've also worked on: market databases, equity research systems, portfolio optimisation, performance analysis, trade generation, program trading, data reconciliation and cleaning, web/server-side/desktop applications, software auditing/fixing/re-engineering.
I work at the intersection of research, engineering and business to make creative research-driven projects succeed. I've worked in highly entrepreneurial and successful financial organisations as portfolio manager, trader, researcher, software developer and team leader. I played key development and operational roles in high profile investment fund launches worldwide. Some of the systems that I designed and developed are still in use after more than a decade.
An agile approach is key to developing research-driven production systems under time constraints. I will help you sketch out a strategic pathway and will implement targeted solutions to incrementally reach your aim.
I favour technologies that allow for rapid research and deployment, with software and data quality built-in from the ground up. I approach every new research project as a potential candidate for full scale deployment.
After working in the financial sector, I expanded my horizons to cultural publishing and the study of cultural theory. I've got an MSc in maths/physics and an MA in cultural studies, and I am currently studying psychoanalysis. I am also a carer and I support my community as a volunteer, e.g. I recently did sound recording and post-production for METRO, a UK charity that provides health, community and youth services.
With my multidisciplinary background, I am looking forward to contributing to projects in:
