Our Story

The story behind Hentsū

Hentsū grew out of the need of asset managers to evolve beyond the traditional resource and capital heavy IT model, allowing managers to scale up or down, pivot strategies, and adapt to changing market opportunities at a moment’s notice – securely, efficiently, and on demand. As the first managed service provider specializing in public cloud environments for hedge funds and asset managers. We build on the 3 major cloud platforms: Amazon AWS, Google, and Microsoft Azure with a fully managed service. Hentsū is comprised of a team of forward thinking and experienced architects, engineers, and programmers. We deliver first-class service and innovative technology to our clients.
