As the Director of Tag Assessoria Comercial e Financeira in Brazil, Helio Laniado works with financial investments in the stock market and real estate development. Recently he began using the program APAMA from Progress Software to create an auto trader for stocks and futures in the Brazilian markets. As a capital markets platform, APAMA lends itself particularly well to this application.
When Helio Laniado began this endeavor, he invited college students to join him, giving them the opportunity to gain skills in practical application as well as theoretical knowledge. Taking the APAMA software as a basis, they evolve strategies from market experience and their studies in subjects ranging from statistics to computer science.
About Helio Laniado: He founded his company in 1993, intending to concentrate primarily on private equity and start-up projects. Aside from his business, he also supports various charitable organizations including Ten Yad and Beit Chabad Brazil, including the latter's Projeto Felicidade.
