The Data Intelligence Fund (DIF) combines Big Data analysis and artificial intelligence (A.I.) algorithms to form smart and automated investment decisions. The fund can hold long positions in highly liquid European equites and ETFs as well as long / short positions in highly liquid equity indices (e.g. DAX Future) for risk and exposure management. The investment objective of the Data Intelligence Fund is a positive return, which significantly exceeds the risk-adjusted yield of the DAX on a long-term average. At the same time, the aim is to not realize any negative annual returns.

Fund Profile

The fund’s investment decisions are based on Big Data analysis of more than 45,000 securities in real time. The data on securities and financial markets is automatically collected, filtered, weighted and analysed in seven countries and in three languages (German, English and Chinese) through natural language processing. In this way, more than 2 million capital market-related news items are evaluated every day in real time.

The system assigns to each security a preliminary positive or negative signal based on the collected information. Before a final trading signal is generated, the A.I. algorithm compares calculated sentiments and intensities with historical sentiments and historical price movements and provides predictions. New decisions and its performance results are added to the database and therefore included for future trading signals going forward. The system is self-learning on an automated basis and the whole process from crawling the data to trading execution is fully automated.

The stock universe for the Big Data & A.I. based stock selection consists of the most liquid European stocks from DAX, M-DAX, TecDAX and EuroStoxx50 indices. Stocks are weighted with less than 50% weighting in the fund and have an average holding period of 4 weeks. More than 50% of the fund consist of a risk management component with long or short positions in highly liquid equity indices (like DAX future).

The combination of millions of opinions and messages in combination with the unique experience set in new technology leads to a competitive advantage compared to traditional investment forms. Our focused trading is non-frequent and comes with a tailored risk management including “Big Data triggers” and stop loss limits.
