A new world needs a new way of thinking about
markets and trading.

Old economy ways do not cut it in a world dominated by a level
of volatility and uncertainty never experienced before.

Several years ago, three friends realised they were thinking in the same way about global economics. With this in mind, they set out on a journey to create a new way of managing the latest realities of the global markets.

And so the Swarm Matrix™ was created by Pan Yiannakou, Charlie Drew and Ian Russell.
The three founders have created a software development company called Swarm Technology (Swarm Intelligence Trading) Ltd, within which has been developed the unique Swarm Matrix™ trading program.

Pan brings a wealth of fund management, trading and systems development experience trader from over 30 years in the game, Charlie is a 1st class graduate specialising in insect technology, platform development and analytics and Ian is an experienced global CEO and technology expert.

Trading systems work, generate positive bias, and have many
advantages over human decision-makers.

Swarm Intelligence is a phenomenon observed in the natural world where the collective behavior of a colony of simple ‘agents’ generates far more advanced actions than the cumulative performance of the individuals. This effect can be created artificially and is utilized in many areas; robotics, IT process optimization, scheduling and telecoms.

Swarm Technology has found a way to harness the natural power of Swarm Intelligence to extract information more efficiently than traditional systematic methods. This is embedded in the Swarm Matrix™ trading program.

Swarm Technology was set up in 2019 in Cyprus (EU). The company initially licensed its software and trading signals to a small family office and has a live track record from July 2019.
