Analizo launches algorithm-as-a-service solution


Analizo has launched Europe’s first algorithm-as-a-service, in a bid to bring quantitative investing technology the wealth management industry through algorithmic investment strategies.

The solution will allow users to provide robo-investing capabilities to their clients, eventually will allow them trade directly on their own shared account., retaining full ownership and reducing security risks.

According to Analizo, it could be possible to virtually replicate all exchange-traded fund structures using algorithm-based products.

Analizo reports that nine out of 10 actively-managed funds in Europe are currently missing their benchmarks, and claims that the new solution will improve this statistic to the benefit of the entire wealth management industry.

Wouter Verlinden, CEO of Analizo, said: “Artificial intelligence and algorithmic investing are on the brink of revolutionising asset management.”

“Computers are more adept at making rational and better investment decisions and are able to handle vast amounts of data that a biological brain is simply incapable of processing.”

Jef Laurijssen, Analizo COO, commented: “With algorithms building the portfolio, managers can focus even more on customer relationships and on guiding their clientele towards market-beating financial performance.”
