Company Insight:

The company is a software-first, multi-strategy fund which continues to retain its accolade as the most pioneering in the research and technology space. They have set a precedent for trading markets autonomously in a highly profitable way, and leveraging the most intricate of Machine Learning techniques and prediction algorithms to do so.

Since Equities is the most data-affluent of asset-classes, the scope for new and enhanced models to conceptualize novel Equities strategies is immense. As such, the fund are looking to construct a fully systematic Equities pipeline which uses machine Learning end-to-end; everything from data ingestion to trading signal generation to risk and portfolio optimization will be handled by machine learning algorithms. The challenge is to model the idiosyncratic drivers for each stock individually, as well as creating models to detect the lying latent structures that make markets of stocks move together.

  • Apply Natural Language Processing, Deep Learning and Bayesian & Signal Optimization techniques to find Alpha in the most challenging industry for Machine Learning
  • Analyse enormous datasets, including unconventional, unstructured data, to predict and test statistical market patterns
  • Distinguish patterns that are durable from those which are transient, and identify when and where patterns occur
  • Create a flexible pipeline where new ideas can be seamlessly implemented with rapidity
