Arbitrage house

Financial institution

 which engages in arbitrage. Such firms look for 

Market

 inefficiencies and securities which they feel are mispriced, and then undertake trades which allow them to make riskless 

Profit

Arbitrage

 opportunities are often very difficult to detect, since mispricings can be very small. Further, 

Arbitrage

 opportunities tend to disappear almost immediately since 

Market

 forces act to reverse the opportunity. Given these characteristics of arbitrage, many 

Arbitrage

 houses are equipped with very sophisticated computer software and hardware to help them identify potential opportunities and act on them very quickly. Many 

Arbitrage

 houses also develop complex software-driven mathematical models to identify mispricings and 

Market

 inefficiencies.
