The »Bantleon Quant Lab« is responsible for developing and implementing quantitative investment strategies. Our core expertise here lies in quantitative methods for active portfolio management, quantitatively optimised portfolio construction and quantitative risk management. Big Data, together with technological advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence, is opening up new opportunities to optimise portfolios in line with specific institutional requirements. The »Bantleon Quant Lab« aims to combine quantitative and economic research into an innovative whole. We do this by employing methods from a range of fields, including data analysis, statistics, mathematics, econometrics, engineering and IT, to find correlations between financial market trends.
Deciding whether and how quantitative models are used is a complex task. Besides exploring all the options, it is also important to find where the limits are and take care to create robust models. The advantage of quantitative models is that they enable portfolio managers to analyse many more stocks or bonds than they could manually in the same amount of time. They also remove the emotional element from investment decision-making.
