We have expended considerable resources over the past twenty-five years to develop a powerful and sophisticated infrastructure. To build this platform, we've invested heavily in our technology, processes, and people. We use advanced computer hardware and have created proprietary software to conduct our investment activities and back-office operations, implement strong controls, and share knowledge across the firm. Our technology platform and tools for research and analysis are managed by more than 250 developers and engineers, while approximately 150 professionals work in accounting, legal, tax, and treasury roles. Our infrastructure also helps us provide what we believe is best-in-class investor support and transparency by delivering extensive reporting and risk analytics with an emphasis on accessibility, clarity, and usefulness.

In 2015, we formed Arcesium LLC to make some of our technology platform available to other asset managers. Arcesium, now an independently operated company, provides post-trade technology and services to financial services clients, while continuing to support the D. E. Shaw group and its funds. More information about Arcesium can be found on its website.
