Alpha Academic

A brief overview of the company

Alpha Academic has established itself as a leading provider of vocational education in the heart of the City of London. Our unique trading courses are led by a practising market maker, and our algorithmic trading courses are led by a former consultant to Microsoft, and we regularly invite leading industry bodies to deliver guest lectures.

At Alpha Academic, you can trade a wide range of products, including but not limited to fixed income, currencies, commodities, indices and equities all through our futures trading platforms. Alpha Academic also supports its traders in specialising in the asset class or products. By using innovative technology, our expert team develop qualitative and quantitative research models which focus on trading opportunities across an array of financial markets.


Globally, corporates are exposed to significant levels of currency and commodity risk on a day-to-day basis. This in turn has driven an increased awareness of risk and fuelling a need for more robust, sophisticated enterprise risk management. Decision-making integrated with risk management is key to gaining a critical edge over rivals.

Alpha Academic provide consulting services to a vast network of firms, offering portfolio re-balancing, commodity and currency hedging.

Our management team have over four decades of experience in implementing effective risk management regimes. This is achieved by assessing our customers’ requirements, and devising a customised strategy in accordance with their business objectives and risk exposure. A single, detailed, transparent view on risk allows for more sophisticated and predictive analysis. This in turn affords the company the advantage to forward plan and secure their prices for the future, today; and function with a peace of mind in a volatile world.
