Sept. 11 -- Hanweck Associates, LLC, a premier financial-services provider specializing in high-performance risk management and trading solutions for institutional investors, today announced that principal partner and founder Gerald Hanweck, Jr., PhD., will be speaking at the 2009 High Performance Computing on Wall Street event in New York. Hanweck will examine hardware acceleration technologies that help financial firms boost the performance of their high performance computing (HPC) applications and drive significant cost savings.
Hanweck will join other industry leaders on the panel, "Leveraging Hardware Acceleration for Financial Markets Applications," and will highlight how the company has leveraged graphics processing unit (GPU) to power its high-performance options analytics engine VoleraFEED. Used by leading stock exchanges and institutional trading systems, the hardware-accelerated solution calculates options valuations 30 times faster than traditional CPU-based systems, while reducing operational costs by 90 percent.
Attendees will learn how-to apply hardware-accelerated solutions in the financial services marketplace, and hear about tangible benefits from using these high-performance technologies to underlie complex trading systems. Gerald Hanweck will also be available for comment on best practices for leveraging hardware acceleration as well as future predictions for the high-performance computing marketplace.
