Investment principles

We believe that investment portfolio has to be hedged against significant deterioration in value while keeping upside potential
We believe that there is a more effective way to invest in equity and fixed income markets than via market indices
We believe that we can improve risk/reward profile of investments by combining human experience with possibilities of an automated system

Research and development process

By combining investment & research team's expertise we designed a general research and development process that ensures data and results reliability in each development stage

Investment thesis formation
The basis for investment thesis formation is a fundamental investment idea supported by market expertise and academic research

Investment model construction

We define the key parameters of the model: types of instruments, markets, detailed rules and primary strategy parameters

Model statistical analysis

For the research purposes we prepare historical data, account for transactional expenses and liquidity of the traded instruments. Statistical research allows us to collect and analyze statistics. Based on the data we modify the investment model

Model finalization and approval

We match model's performance and risk metrics against our internal requirements, such as risk adjusted return, its volatility and uniformity. We run specifically designed stress tests to prove model's stability and its performance persistency.

Move to tradable strategy

Once the model passed the stress test it is integrated with automated execution module and included in the trading portfolio.

Private capital markets

We provide corporate finance advisory services to clients when it comes to mergers & acquisitions, divestiture of assets and capital raising.
