July 5th, 2022. Chicago, IL, USA. CloudQuant, the leading provider of Alternative Data, Research, and Technology is proud to announce that Paul Bolton will be joining the Chicago Team as Director of Sales. Paul began his career in proprietary trading nearly two decades ago, with his passion for derivatives bringing him to the windy city upon graduating from Cornell University.
After working several years as a trader, Paul’s passion for data led him to financial technology sales, where he’s been selling trading tools, data, and quantitative models for over a decade, at big data vendors, as well as fintech firms spun out of prop trading shops and hedge funds.
Bolton said “My sales specialty has always been connecting market participants with sources of orthogonal alpha, with testable alternative datasets and tools that accelerate the research process. I’m thrilled to build on CloudQuant’s recent success, with an initiative serving the quant community with our in-house backtest results, sourced from over 15k content sets, in a format that allows researchers to verify our claims themselves, and do so quickly. As the world shifts, we’re ready to help the brightest minds in the quant space capitalize on our abundance of alternative data by removing signals from noise. Those backtesting our content will perform research quickly enough to act meaningfully.”
CloudQuant CEO and Founder Morgan Slade said “We are pleased to add industry veteran Paul Bolton, to our Data Sales team to expand our Data Scouting and Advisory business.
