    The Equities Quant Program in APAC delivers a platform for GS' current and prospective quant clients for trading Equities. Quant developers are focused on infrastructure for the lifecycle of trades for these quant clients.

    Key features include lower latency, higher throughput, position and account management for both co-location and existing GS OM2 flows. Additional engineers allow for platform build roadmap between 2017-2019, allowing GS to significantly grow gross revenues from 2016 to 2020. Quant clients will also drive increases in market share for GS APAC over the same timeframe, leading significant benefits in both tiering and liquidity for all clients.

    Without these roles, GS expects to take significantly longer to develop the same functionality, with expected risk of competitors accelerating their builds, leaving GS unable to reach revenue targets for quants.

    OM2 is the key Order Management System underpinning the Equities flows. Development to replace OMA with OM2 is critical to improve capacity (10x), throughput (3x), and latency (60x), which is critical for preparing the firm for quant clients.
