Olympia Capital Research, Ltd (Olympia) was formed initially as a purely Equities Research Group in 1996 and was in response to the developing trend toward the need for independent equity research reporting unrelated to any corporate finance business.

Since its inception, Olympia has helped to generate significant increases in trading volume and investment capital under management for all of our institutional clients who rely on sound, uncompromising and unbiased reports without any internal conflicts of interests. This has made global investing considerably easier for our clients knowing we separate our consulting business from the Equity Research and Stock and Bond recommendations side of the business.

Responding to market need, we have proven time and again that our pioneering efforts in the independent equity research field has minimized the risk factor for our client; as they perceive a reliable comfort zone in buying and selling transactions.

Our company now provides valuable stock pricing direction; buy, hold and sell advice as well as valuable credit determinations on corporate and government bonds. We focus on indentifying profitable market glitches in P/E ratios and yield differentials while maintain our research integrity.

Olympia Capital Research, Ltd. has announced the launch of OCAP-SYSTEM, a trading algorithm that enables the implementation of multiple portfolio level instructions such as risk neutralization and cash balancing.

Using over 56 different risk metrics, OCAP-SYSTEM optimizes execution at the portfolio level by taking into account correlations between assets, as well as volatility and projected market impact.
