As we look grow further and faster, however, we need to focus a bit more on our organization’s structure and culture (rather than just our products). And for that reason, we are making a few adjustments that should facilitate faster growth in 2019 and beyond.
First, we are incorporating Exante Data, so that its formal name will change from Exante Data LLC to Exante Data Inc. (as of Jan 1, 2019). This will allow us to raise external capital (to build technology) more efficiently, and create employee incentives schemes more flexibly. In sum, it should facilitate growth.
Second, Ankit Sahni will assume a new title as President of Exante Data Inc. and take charge of management responsibility for a number of areas, including research and quantitative product development. I have known Ankit for 7 years, and this is a natural progression of his existing responsibilities at Exante, and it should leverage his unique skills. I hope many of you will also get to know Ankit in 2019, and benefit from his insights and analysis.
There will be further changes in store, which we will be announcing in coming months. But the basic vision is that we want to grow in a fun way. If you have any inputs for us in that regard, do let us know. It is fun to grow and to learn.
