Auquan

Auquan enhances Investment Managers’ existing investment decisions with data-driven insights: we offer solutions across the entire investment workflow from idea generation, investment research, factor modelling and portfolio construction.

THE CHALLENGE

The investment management industry is shifting- leading funds are combining human intelligence with data driven decisions, achieving phenomenal results. As more funds use machine learning techniques to enhance performance, data science isn’t “nice to have” for capturing alpha, it’s essential to avoid an informational disadvantage; accelerating the demand for skilled data scientists to manipulate financial data and implement solutions. They’re a scarce commodity, command hefty salaries and often move firms, taking experience and IP with them. Starting internal operations is time-consuming, scaling harder still. Additionally, it’s difficult for PMs and DS to cooperate, as they rarely speak the same language.

THE SOLUTION

Auquan is the portfolio manager’s data science platform – we enable you to reinforce your existing investment decisions with data driven insights. Solutions are across the entire investment workflow, and depending on where you are in adopting data science, Auquan can help in three stages:

  1. Getting you comfortable with using data: we combine, gather and prepare data to give you access to newer datasets you’re not even currently looking at
  2. Finding patterns and relationships in these datasets to draw alpha insights that feed into investment process
  3. Assisting you to make better decisions through forward looking, predictive models

 

THE IMPORTANCE

Besides our internal team of data scientists, every solution offered by Auquan harnesses the intelligence of a global community of 15000+ machine learning engineers and specialised experts with backgrounds in diverse skills like natural language processing, computer vision and deep learning. Quite similar to an expert network, we regularly tap into the knowledge of our community to constantly enhance and update our solutions. This means our solutions are never static, they always incorporate the newest, latest, best in class techniques. which are thoroughly back-tested, validated and combined into a bespoke solution by Auquan.
