We’ve always been algorithmic. It is who and what we are.
We create quantitative, mathematical investment solutions to meet our client’s needs. Our business is to bring objectivity and discipline to the financial markets using state-of-the-art technologies and Data Science research.
We are neither an asset manager nor a traditional advisor. We are a Financial Advisory Firm regulated by the CNMV. We are a Factory that builds investment methodologies with complete independence. We are independent even of ourselves: once the algorithms are ready to pursue their goal, the Machine rules.
We’ve always been algorithmic. It is who and what we are. It’s taken 15 years to have a market mature enough to make the most of our investment methodology. Now, the thriving new ways of technology are wind in our sails. Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence are taking us faster in the direction we’ve always looked to. In a world on the edge of the next technological revolution, we know we can’t miss that boat. And we won’t because we’ve loved being on board since 1987.
Sixty percent of our staff and resources are fully dedicated to Research and Development.
Sixty percent of our staff and resources are fully dedicated to Research and Development. That’s how we deal with uncertainty: opposing subjectivity with Science. We don’t try to guess, but to adapt to the markets on the basis of rigorous scientific research. Passionate problem solvers as we are, we find it amazing to be doing this for a living and for a purpose: improving the quality and effectiveness of investment, to bring transparency and objectivity to the markets.
We work to substitute subjectivity with discipline and risk control.
We’ve learnt that very often markets are ruled by emotions: ambition and fear, above all. We work to substitute subjectivity with discipline and risk control. There is absolutely nothing certain about markets –or life. But without objectivity, you can’t find out what’s behind failure or success. It’s like going unarmed to war.
We specialise in risk control. And we do it right. If our international institutional clients have trusted us during the last three decades, being partners, almost friends, it’s because we’ve never given false expectations.
We think that freedom is inseparable from what we do.
We’ve never had an investment committee, and we never will. We’d rather explore the fascinating possibilities of Machine Learning. And -awkward as it may sound- we don’t read the financial press. We feel more like having a look at Kaggle competitions.
Our size is uncommon, we know. We are small, but this hasn’t stopped us from collaborating with many big names for decades.
We’ve always been a family owned company, with the same shareholders from the beginning. So we are 100% focused on business and not on corporate politics. We think that freedom is inseparable from what we do.
