QS Financial

Q-Sphere Financial (QSF) is a software development and service provider arm of Q-Sphere specialising in complex, distributed, real-time trading and risk management systems for the financial services industry.

QSF utilises modular, service based approach to system development and integration so modules or services can be mixed and matched in applications ranging from small-and-simple to complex assemblies where multiple business units, from multiple legal entities, can be connected and operate on a global basis in real-time.

Core QS Financail Design Philosophy

Core QSF subsystems utilise a plug-and-play rule-based approach so in addition to software provided by QSF, clients can use proprietary or other third-party software modules. These extend the system without the need to reveal source code to QSF even if QSF personnel are helping with consultancy, extensions or integration.

QSF provides design and implementation care to supply modules with extreme scalability and resilience. This includes massive parallelism where needed, or self-healing in order to protect mission-critical systems for unit failures.
