Professor Gautam Mitra and Dr Cormac Lucas set up OptiRisk Systems in the year 2000. In the early days (2000- 2008) the company used to draw upon the research results of CARISMA: The Centre for the Analysis of Risk and Optimization Modelling Applications, Brunel University. CARISMA was a world class research centre founded by Professor Mitra. Since 2009 Gautam Mitra has held a visiting Professorship (honorary) in the department of Computer Science (UCL); with Computational Finance specialization. The source of research results has accordingly shifted.The focus of the leading edge products and services offered by the company have also evolved. Almost all the members of the technical team possess research degrees. The team members are drawn from an international background and between them speak a wide variety of languages, thus enabling OptiRisk to interact with clients from across the globe.
