Behind the Machine

About Us

Investifai applies the latest advances in artificial intelligence research to build dynamic, responsive investment portfolios.

Our vision is to systematically exploit deep statistical relationships as they emerge and before they are discovered by other investors. If there’s a butterfly effect, we’re connecting the butterfly with the hurricane, and looking to take advantage of the situations that develop along the way.

To stay ahead of the pack our team of scientists continuously research promising developments in machine learning and combine them with the latest empirical findings and techniques in portfolio and risk management.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

  • Always focus on what's best for every client.
  • Stay humble, objective and independent.
  • Success in investing is about disagreeing with the crowd while being right.
  • Leveraging the most advanced tools will put you ahead of others.
  • Uniqueness is imperative.
  • Always seek to balance risk with reward and minimize cost.

SCIENTIFIC APPROACH

Our proprietary deep machine learning system identifies and quantifies investment opportunities with no human intervention. By avoiding cognitive biases we aim to improve on more traditional portfolio management approaches.

Our system ingests vast amounts of data to guide the portfolio through opportunities and threats as they develop.
