About us

Background and vision

Innolab is a Copenhagen based fin-tech company from 2015 utilizing artificial intelligence and deep learning to develop niche investment solutions and investment advisory tools.

Our vision is to deliver value for money to the investment advisory and investment management industry through:

  • improving the long-term relation between return and risk
  • continue to improve the fee structure for the clients

Using machine learning technology reduces subjectivity and the risk of emotional bias, allowing us to develop structured, disciplined and repeatable investment processes.

We strongly believe that machine learning and artificial intelligence robots can improve long term investment decision-making and deliver better outcomes to investors. Thanks to their ability to process much more complex patterns modern machine learning algorithms outperform traditional linear regression.

Implementing artificial intelligence in the investment process can be complicated which is why Innolab focus on delivering value through:

  • simple and transparent investment strategies
  • user-friendly and informative web application with daily asset forecasts.

We have combined AI engineers with experienced management from the investment industry giving us the right blend of AI and human intuition to get an edge in the market.

While far from high-frequency, Innolab is sampling data, adjusting signals and return forecasts continuously, 24 hours a day for most asset classes in the world.

All research and models are deployed in a highly-resilient, scalable, zero-downtime environment in the cloud.

Artificial intelligence-based investment strategies

Innolab’s asset management strategies are based on the philosophy that the products must be simple outside while understanding that it is complex inside.

All products have the following characteristics:

  • The investment decisions are based 100% on artificial intelligence and deep learning.
  • The product development process combines artificial intelligence, input from investment professionals and client demands.
  • The execution and trading are based on straight through processing, algorithms and oversight from outsourced trading experts.
  • The risk management combines artificial intelligence, machine learning and initial input from investment professionals.
