WELCOME TO HUDSON


Hudson Fintech provides innovative software solutions to the financial industry. Our Hudson Platform has been built in-house from the ground up to provide a powerful software engine designed to handle complex trade workflows on virtually any type of asset or business line. The Hudson platform is designed for unsurpassed flexibility in supported features, rapid deployment, and agile change. It is transformed and extended by the addition of fully customisable modules, such as our Collateral Management module for Repo and Securities Finance trading. The Hudson Platform can be extended in any way with bespoke modules in order to support any business line or assets that you trade in a single, scalable solution

Our software is all about flexibility and rapid adaptation. We will work closely with you to customise the platform to your needs and fit it in to any workflow and environment and can even provide you with the tools and training for you to develop your own extensions. Thanks to a unique software architecture, which is inspired by technology from the video games industry, called Entity-Component-System design we are able to change and adapt to your requirements with unparalleled agility. The Hudson Platform is designed from the ground up to be performant, reliable, and adaptable.

We use modern technology throughout Hudson. Gone are the clunky 1980s Unix user interfaces, replaced with a sleek and modern web based system that is responsive, capable, easy to navigate, and pleasure to use. Our interface includes many advanced features not seen in other web applications, such as dockable window panes and popouts. Alternately, if you like, Hudson's user interface can be run in stand-alone mode without a web browser. Our back-end server is built on modern high-concurrency Java, taking full advantage of all the cores in modern servers with a grid-computing engine for distributing workloads dynamically.

How it works

THE TECHNOLOGY OF HUDSON


In 2018, video games were a $43.8 billion industry. Your business is not a game, but step back for a moment and consider a few things. Modern video games are some of the most advanced pieces of software in existence. Games juggle billions of polygons in massive 3d space, running trillions of matrix calculations per second. Games simulate thousands of characters with some of the most convincing artificial intelligence around. Online games connect thousands of nodes online at any given moment. Video games have evolved a lot since the days of pong, so why is your trading software still stuck in an 8-bit world?

Games today are built on top of "Game Engines". These are software platforms that provide a toolkit for assembling the assets and logic to create a game. Artists, musicians, level designers, and of course programmers all ply their unique crafts in their areas of expertise and bring it together on the game engine to produce a finished game. Hundreds of people can be involved in modern game design and they are able to create new games with hours of play-time in only a few months. It is a technology in the game engine called an "Entity-Component-System" that makes this possible. Until now, the ECS engine has not been used outside of video games, but the concept is surprisingly simple to understand and the results are astounding. With Hudson we've taken this incredible technology and applied it to trading systems so that your business can move at unreal speed.

The Entity-Component-System based engine that drives the Hudson treats all of the items in your business, such as securities, books, counterparties, prices, trades, and more, as simple entities to which arbitrary data can be added. We break down the traditional object-hierarchy that is present in other systems and which is difficult to maintain and nearly impossible to reliably test and instead build flat compositions of properties, which are called components. In computer science this is known as "composition over inheritance". This gives us the ability to invent new types of entities by simply changing the components that are attached to them. This can be done dynamically at any time, allowing the creation of totally new trade types without even restarting the system. Ideas like generic trade capture to harness immediate market movements become possible. Business logic in Hudson is provided by systems which are discreet tools for performing tasks. A large set of available systems represents a toolkit of possible options for building up complex business processes and logic like assembling generic building blocks. In traditional systems your tools are limited - as the expression goes, if the only tool you have is a hammer then all problems begin to look like nails. Hudson instead provides a rich toolbox of systems that can truly harness the opportunities that you would have otherwise missed. Invite us for a demo to see for yourself how this can really work for you.

Why Hudson?

Intrepid Pioneers

Our company's name comes from the intrepid 16th century explorer Henry Hudson who opened up much of the New World. Hudson explored all along the east coast of Canada and the United States and has many geographic features named after him including Hudson Bay, one of the most striking geographic features visible from space and the Hudson River which flows through the heart of the world's largest financial center. With our company values of innovation, agility, and determination we hope to reflect the intrepidity of Henry Hudson and his unswerving drive forward in our business. Our logo of the ship reflects this commitment. We hope your partnership with Hudson Fintech will be a journey that will open up the world to your business.
