“We are on a mission to democratize the Bond Market.”
After working for over a decade in some of the world’s largest financial institutions and few stints at startups, Ajit began to realize how far behind the fixed income market was in applying modern technology. He started brainstorming with longtime friends from the industry and quickly zeroed in on bond pricing as the single biggest problem in the fixed income market, which is holding it back. It is complex, opaque, and inefficient also remains spreadsheet driven, and dominated by large financial institutions, ultimately lowering the trust in the bond market.
The idea of reimagining bond pricing was born. It was the one idea that would keep him awake at night, it would not leave him alone, and the startup was born. Ajit realized he needed help with Big Data and Machine Learning, which lead him to reach out and partner with Paul and Victor. Following in-depth research of the market and after consulting with industry insiders and experts. They realized the opportunity was way more enormous than they could have imagined. At that point, the idea transformed into Bond Intelligence. As the plan began to unfold, Ajit needed additional help in data science and machine learning. He reached out to a longtime friend Ani, at the time he was in a postgraduate program in data science at the University of Washington, he would connect Ajit with Julius from the business school and Franky from the data science program. Eventually, experts and industry insider Abhi, Mike, Tim, Barnet, Marc, and Kyle would join the team.

We are a team of finance professionals, engineers, and data scientists, and we hold the products we craft to the highest standard. We believe that the most valuable insights must derive from the fundamental, market, and alternative data and technology at the intersection of different disciplines. Data is a means to improving trust in the market. Trust is the currency of engagement. We believe that exceptionally engineered pricing models, artificial intelligence, and predictive algorithmic pricing — not marble office buildings on Wall St — are the cornerstones of establishing trust.
Today there is a complex system of regulation, closed financial institutions, and inaccessible debt information that can seem daunting to a trader or investor who is trying to evaluate a bond. Investment firms are looking for alternative analysis seeking differentiated Insights. Making evaluation simple, focused, and immediately apparent and walking through the complete decision-making process is hard work. But we believe that by sticking to this goal, we can make something extraordinary for traders and investors to unlock the gains from untapped Alpha.
