Optimal data use

Simplicity. This, according to Hans, is at the core of optimal data use in the investment process. Simplicity in data structure and in access to databases means that users can work directly, and easily, with the most relevant data. Hans and his team ensure that investors can quickly test new ideas and models and thus validate them.

Development team

Under Hans’ leadership; the specialized development team works daily on the development and improvement of new applications and tools. Consequently the work of the organization continuously accelerates and improves. The team has developed a transaction tool which has resulted in the buying and selling process becoming even faster and safer.

Intensive cooperation

Pelargos’s ICT specialists work closely with both front and back offices. The tight size of the team means that communication lines are short and improvements can be quickly implemented. And any problems can quickly be resolved. In this way Hans and his team can maximise the opportunities offered by automation and digitization.
