Gambit Financial Solutions was created in 2007 by a group of scientists at HEC-University of Liège. Our ambition – then and now – is simple : to put the customer at the heart of investment advice by the use of innovative technology.
We continue to work closely with the academic community and we are a major innovative force in our field. On top of that, we completed our expertise in finance and algorithmics with a comprehensive technology stack of modules, as well as services that accompany them. We invest heavily in R&D and innovation projects.
