Quantitative trading systems are software algorithms that generate buy and sell signals on the traded securities markets. They are particularly suitable for highly liquid markets, which display regular trend movements, in which the direction of the trend plays no particular role. In this context, Matrix Investment uses fully automated trading systems with incorporated risk management procedures. We operate a central data warehouse for all data that are relevant for successful investment decisions.
All factors are economically plausible with their effect on the share price being statistically quantifiable. They are continuously assessed against prevailing market conditions and, if necessary are, adjusted or eliminated. The result is a sophisticated proprietary process. An optimally diversified combination of factors is essential to achieve reliable forecasts. Each portfolio’s optimisation is based on current risk and return forecasts, along with given objectives and mandate-specific restrictions. Our ultimate goal is the maximisation of risk-adjusted returns after all costs.
