Share: The Benzinga Global Fintech Awards are a yearly showcase of the best and brightest in fintech. In preparation for its biggest installment yet in May 2018, we're profiling the companies competing for the BZ Awards. Our next feature is on Quantiacs . What does your company do? What unique problem does it solve? There are millions of technical professionals in the world with the skills to develop quality trading algorithms. The reality is that more than 99 percent of them will never see the inside of an investment fund. Meanwhile there are millions of investors who would love to access high-quality quantitative investment strategies but don't have the expertise, time or resources to build out a quant investment strategy on their own or work with a large quant fund. Quantiacs has solved this problem by building an investment platform that allows freelance quants anywhere in the world to license their quantitative programs to institutional investors while receiving 10 percent of the net profits their algorithms actually generate for investors. The platform provides investors access to the world’s largest selection of quantitative trading algorithms where they can build custom portfolios of algorithms to best complement their objectives. Our team of professional quantitative developers and managers thoroughly review every algorithm on our marketplace and forward-tests them for a minimum of 6-months to ensure their robustness. We handle the entire trading operation, provide risk management, and ensure regulatory compliance. Who are your customers? Our customers are both institutional investors, family offices, and high-net-worth individuals as well as the quantitative developers building strategies on our platform.
