The story behind Innolab

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

improving the long-term relation between return and risk

continuous improvement of the fee structure

simple and transparent investment strategies

We strongly believe that investment models based on machine learning and artificial intelligence can improve the long term investment decision-making and deliver better outcomes to investors.

 
Such models reduce the subjectivity and the risk of emotional bias and allow us to develop structured, disciplined and systematic investment strategies.
 
We offer asset managers that partner with us the following :
 
Instead of hiring a team Innolab can provide 
 
  • a 100% AI driven research and portfolio construction in all asset classes and across asset classes 
  • a hedged pure alpha strategy or 
  • a long only benchmarked strategy

all with no front loaded investment team cost. Your cost as our partner is related to the succes of the investment strategy.

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

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

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 asset management strategies have the following characteristics:

  • The product development process combines artificial intelligence, input from investment professionals and client demands.
  • The investment decisions are based 100% on artificial intelligence and deep learning.
  • 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.

All investment models are rigorously tested and robustness is our first priority. With AI embedded in the investment process you can spearhead significant improvements in returns.
