“We started getting questions about factors following the so-called ‘Factormageddon’ rotation in early 2016. But ever since, both the depth and scope of the factor information being requested by investors has accelerated dramatically”
“While just a decade ago there were only a handful of factors tracked by most managers - such as beta, value, momentum, size - now over 1,000 factors and sub-factors have been identified, with no end in sight”
Out of step with today’s market
Strategy overpowered by market forces
A ‘quant-empowered’ fundamental investor can better compete in today’s market.
“Integrating quants and alternative data fully into a fund manager’s research and investment process — but without trying to turn them into quants themselves — is crucial”
“Even the most fundamentally oriented fund managers have a need for systematic output that shields them from being emotionally attached to particular investment ideas”
The formula for success:
Building your own internal function involves significant cost and headache and takes a long time to pay off.
The Omega Point platform brings together all the resources required to become ‘quant-empowered’ in one easy-to-use interface that adds value from day one.
Investment managers are drowning in data, yet only a tiny elite (1%) have the internal expertise to supplement their investment processes with it. We should know, we used to manage multi-billion-dollar portfolios using such systematic strategies at leading funds such as Two Sigma.
This disparity, coupled with the market distortion that has accompanied the rise of machine-assisted investing made us realise fundamental investors faced a problem; To better compete in today’s markets, they need to adopt data-driven approaches. But how??
We used our experience at the large funds to build a no-code investment intelligence and data orchestration platform. Our goal being to create the easiest way for any investor, regardless of quant-savviness, to harness the world's data in their decision-making.
