4estRobot ©

It is our fund manager robot.

It manages financial assets with no/minimal human intervention

Keeping the core philosophy of our company in mind, we as VeriZeka have developed what we call 4estRobot ©, in order to cater for buy-side spectrum of the finance industry, such as the fund managers, wealth managers and bank treasuries. The MVP of the 4estRobot © was completed in April 2016.

And, since February 2018, our product is on the marketplace: Our AI product is now being utilized by some of leading asset managers in Turkey in their efforts to manage some of their hedge fund management mandates.

Besides, our own technology and state-of-the-art design is also currently installed in our own servers as well, connected to both the data providers on one side (data-end) and broker APIs on the other (the execution-end). Our technology acts as our Treasury of our company since 2017. In short, yes, we believe in robots and trust our robot 4estRobot © as our head of Treasury!

Capabilities of 4estRobot©

In such roles, 4estRobot © performs the following daily tasks with no human intervention:

  • Collecting, cleaning, reviewing and organising market data
  • Inferring associations, relations, and patterns from the financial time series
  • Making investment decisions
  • Entering the market and generating orders
  • Executing orders
  • Managing positions and optimising position sizes and weights
  • Reporting the execution, position and overall PL path
  • Adapting to, learning and gaining experience from earlier trades over the course
  • Doing all of this with little or no human intervention

In short, we have done our best to achieve a complete rationalization at most typical stages of the investment process in most money managers.

Now

The potential market for this product is endless: As a start, we expect the hedge funds domiciled in Turkey (and are regulated by the Capital Markets Board of Turkey) to begin utilizing our trading robot as decision maker and/or decision support mechanism in their operations by the beginning of 2018.

Future

Coming onto our future plans, the development of this robot is a life-learning journey, and we maintain our unabated R&D efforts. There is an immense and countless array of alternative paths of research on our quest, and the development areas for our robot (both from an analytics and coding perspective) is a never-ending process. Thus, we still allocate a significant portion of our resources to R&D, seeking to produce ever-better versions.
