What We Do

Omega Point brings advanced quantitative investing to fundamental-style asset managers, funds of funds, and endowments who manage over 85% of the world’s assets.

In the last few years, ruthless competition has increasingly forced these traditionally fundamental managers to use big data techniques. This is a secular market trend, and we believe soon every asset manager will have to use quantitative tools to survive. They need to compete with a myriad of algorithmic strategies and better manage the drivers of their own performance — in a market that’s very macro-driven and inter-correlated. This transition will be quite hard.

Omega Point supercharges fundamental asset managers by making it easier to manage the complexity of modern financial markets. Our team includes market experts and ML PhDs who built a cutting-edge data science platform that uncovers a fund’s exposure in real-time to the 60+ key market trends that drive its performance. We make it easy for managers to understand, visualize, and truly optimize their portfolio with the best user interface and workflows on the market.
