About

Alpaca is a technology company developing financial system platforms powered by the collaboration of AI and people.

With the support of AI, people can fully explore the
ideas and creativity within the world of investment, and maximize the “alpha” (or unrealized potential) that lays hidden inside both AI and people. It is through this that we strive to build a society where “people can live truest to their form.”

We recognize that our business will have an impact on the way the current global financial system operates, and that is a new challenge that will bring forth exciting changes.

To face this challenge, a firm partnership with our various involved stakeholders will be necessary. We will commit to tackling the various problems of the current financial system, while maintaining a close relationship with those connected to us and the community that supports our work.
