Empower with A.I.

Computers are able to overperform human intelligence in many fields. This trend will continue and grow. We are here to help asset managers and leverage their decision process with A.I. and advanced learning.

Context

We are all overwhelmed by data coming from many different sources. It is the same for asset managers who face more and more information to integrate into their management decisions, whether price data, macroeconomic data, market feelings, the increasingly numerous news… It is impossible as a human to handle these millions of signals at the same time. The asset manager is left with too many parameters to digest in order to make the right decisions in real time based on his own strategies. On the other side, new technologies are becoming more and more efficient. Artificial intelligence methods and machine learning tools make it possible to efficiently manage these data and understand their impact on investment strategies in order to make the best decisions.

Our Vision

We started from a real conviction: new technologies will change the asset management world. With the increasing complexity of the financial markets, our project aims to use the most advanced techniques in artificial intelligence to help asset managers. Our vision is that the machine outperforms human intuition. We are on augmented intelligence. The machine does not replace the manager, it is a decision reinforcement tool. It is not trivial, hence our 4 years of R&D with key people with a cutting edge expertise.

Our Story

story

We started building a fully front-to-back trading platform in 2015 to develop systematic investment strategies on financial markets. One of the founders, Eric Benhamou, applied machine learning techniques in finance to improve the strategies and the investment process.

These techniques include cutting-edge optimisation methods, supervised and reinforcement learning. RCube AM, a French Asset Manager, is using our software to commercialise Ai for Capital , the investment program developed by our platform. We have been investing our own capital in the program since 2018. The program is open to external investors since September 2019. Read more

Other asset managers expressed their interest in using our technology for their strategies. We had our first client in February 2020. Based on this observation, we started opening our platform to external managers for their own strategies and developed Ai for Alpha, our augmented intelligence offer to help managers in their decision process.
