Quantitative Asset Management
Meet the team
Innovation at all levels
Swissquote’s Quantitative Asset Management department (QAM) was created in 2008 to explore quantitative research in finance. One of the team’s landmark achievements is the launch of the Robo-Advisor, a sophisticated automated asset manager that uses powerful and fully in-house developed algorithms.
Bringing together an alchemy of skills, the QAM department is made up of seven physicists and mathematicians. These talented professionals boast a wide range of expertise and experience, and a passion for research and analysis.
QAM’s goal is to provide clients with the latest science in finance, all in a simple and intuitive format, while developing new ideas and opportunities.
QAM has three main activities
This field seeks to optimise investment portfolios, order execution, dynamic management of portfolio limits, and quant strategies. Our Robo-Advisor provides quantitative finance services.
and big data
QAM leverages data and artificial intelligence to serve several Swissquote departments. For example, it helps the Legal department detect insider trading and the Marketing department with the creation of personas.
Quantitative risk analysis is derived from quantitative finance and is particularly important for the Controlling department. Its purpose is to anticipate market risk, especially for options and futures.
