Systematic Intelligent Alpha (excess return) or SiAlpha™ is a quantitative investment research system effectively identifying asymmetric (low risk-to-reward) investment opportunities in public company shares and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) listed on North American markets.
We remove speculation and guesswork to provide a proven scientific model to identify market opportunities, manage risk, and structure investment portfolios to consistently outperform the markets. Many of these opportunities arise as a result of supply and demand imbalances that usually persist for only a short period of time between 1 to 3 months.
SiAlpha™ has a proven 8-year track of outstanding returns in a live proprietary trading environment. SiAlpha™ provides a safer, smarter way to invest in North American equity markets. SiAlpha™ was born out of our founders’ vision to help individual investors almost “never lose money” and earn above-market returns under all market conditions. His research into the best money managers introduced him to the relatively unknown mathematician named James Simons (pictured below) and the world of quantitative investing.
Simons used his “black box” quantitative models to launch an extraordinarily successful hedge fund firm few have heard of: Renaissance Technologies LLC The performance of his flagship fund since launch in 1989 has been nothing but extraordinary with an average annualized return of 35% (net of fees) and over a twenty year period with no negative period returns in any calendar year!
Although not easy, it is possible to make more money with less risk. Just like Simons and several other exceptional investment managers such as Ray Dalio of Bridgewater Associates, Dan Loeb of Third Point, David Tepper of Appaloosa Management, and of course the legendary Warren Buffett of Berkshire Hathaway, have consistently done so using a systematic and disciplined approach.
