How it works

Distill the data. Reveal actionable insights

Data Integrity + Investment Expertise + Processing Power

Our investment expertise is crucial to establishing the drivers and macro factors that are relevant to each security. This is combined with high-quality data, distilled using algorithms and powerful processing performance.

Our approach allows us to identify which macro factors explain the price action of any given security. The mathematical integrity of our approach is supported by a team from the Astrophysics Group at Cambridge University headed by Professor Michael Hobson.

Whether you adopt a bottom-up or top-down approach, QI can add value to your investment process.


"Our algorithms look for patterns between the values of the drivers and the price of the asset"
Professor Michael Hobson
