About Us

We make quantamental investing easy

Built by quants who have successfully managed multi-billion dollar portfolios using systematic strategies at leading funds such as Two Sigma, Omega Point provides a turnkey software platform that helps fundamental-style portfolio managers boost performance through fully-automated factor analysis.

Omega Point helps PMs maximize performance by incorporating machine-learning techniques into their existing strategies and workflows without the need to absorb large upfront costs or find scarce data scientist talent.

Our Platform

Harnessing vast computational power and big data analysis, Omega Point strips away complexity and make it easy for managers to understand, visualize, and optimize their portfolios with the most intuitive user interface on the market. We help fundamental-style asset managers better manage the drivers of their own performance in a market that’s more macro-driven and inter-correlated.

Omega Point software offers the only portfolio analysis and visualization tool with quantitative optimization that uncovers a portfolio’s exposure in real-time to hundreds of key market factors that drive its performance. This enables PMs to focus on their alpha, avoid unexpected factor draw-downs, and find out what is really driving P&L.
