  • About Us

    Neural Alpha is an award winning sustainable fintech consultancy applying innovative connected data approaches (graph databases, semantic and related technologies) to complex requirements for NGOs and the financial services industry. 

    Neural Alpha has extensive experience in developing ESG investment software leveraging the latest data science, big data, machine learning, data visualisation and financial analysis techniques. Neural Alpha is a recognised thought leader applying these technologies in projects such as Trase.earth, Trase.finance,  lucida.org , Orbitas.finance, and Forest500.org. Our work has been featured on national television, The Economist and in the Financial Times. 

    Our fintech practice is one of 3 lines of business alongside our more sustainability focused ESG and Supply Chains practices.  Whilst this role is primarily focused on our work supporting the calculation and distribution of financial indices and our projects in the shipping industry there will be ample opportunity to also support and lead our sustainable finance focused projects.
