Noviscient is a multi-strategy, quantitative, investment management platform
We work with boutique trading groups around the world to provide scalable access to Alpha for our Investors. Our proprietary models dynamically allocate to these alpha strategies to deliver customised solutions with consistent performance in all market conditions.
Paramount to our principles is the provision of access to alpha with fair fee alignment, information transparency and high liquidity to our investors.
Rather than employing traders with all the costs and IP ownership issues that entail, we crowd-source alpha partners who provide us with a renewable source of systematic trading signals.
We use our Structured Dynamic Learning technology to select alpha partners with a reliable ability to generate alpha. Risk is managed by dynamically allocating capital to our selected pool of alpha partners objectively based on performance.
Our scalable technology platform offers automated execution and reporting which allows us to create customized investment solutions that match investor preferences and constraints with a very high degree of transparency.
