For decades, firms engaging in what is known as “high frequency trading” and “algorithmic trading” have cornered the market on transactions that utilize a combination of advanced computer algorithms, bespoke hardware and special access to opportunities to generate returns that are often more than 30% above the expected market return, year after year. The tools have historically been locked in firms that allow access only to investors will a large enough net worth to fund a significant up-front investment.
