About Us


Quantitative Principles

By applying quantitative principles, we can discover inefficiencies and patterns in normal market data. 


Low Risk

Once succesful patterns are discovered, we aim to utilize our knowledge of portfolio construction to increase diversification, avoid net market exposures, and minimize risk.


Consistent Returns

Our goal is to generate consistent returns over long periods of time, obtaining market-beating returns both in bad times and good.
