HISTORY

Alpha Financial Technologies, LLC was founded in 2000 by Victor Sperandeo. As a professional trader with over 45 years of experience, Mr. Sperandeo is recognized for his futures market trading expertise and has implemented a number of strategies designed to benefit from price trends. These methodologies evolved into our publicly available indexes.

In 2002, AFT granted Standard & Poor’s the exclusive right to sublicense the indexes to third parties, known as the S&P Diversified Trends Indicator, S&P Commodity Trends Indicator, and S&P Financial Trends Indicator. S&P launched the S&P Diversified Trends Indicator in January of 2004.

In November 2009, AFT commenced licensing its indexes directly to third parties, although existing S&P licenses remained in effect. On August 1, 2010, AFT launched the FX Trends Index™ (FXTI®).

AFT's indexes have been utilized by the financial and institutional community globally in a broad array of products including mutual funds, exchange-traded funds, exchange-traded notes, and UCITS III Funds.
