Fund Description

qmetrica uses proprietary machine learning algorithms to identify and capitalize on statistical patterns that are present in security prices. The portfolio, which focuses on large-capitalization U.S.- and Canadian-listed equities, consists of approx. 60 positions and is rebalanced on a weekly basis. The net exposure of the portfolio is also adjusted dynamically every week in order to maximize returns, yet maintain the level of risk exposure substantially below that of the market benchmarks. In addition, the Fund’s downside risk is hedged through the periodic use of short-selling and derivatives based on the output of our model.

Head of Research

Ivan Medovikov holds a Ph.D. degree in econometrics from Western University, Canada, and serves as an assistant professor at the Department of Economics at Brock University, Canada. In addition to his work at qmetrica, he actively teaches and conducts ongoing research in the areas of non-parametric, financial, and time-series econometrics. Ivan formerly worked as a research assistant at the Bank of Canada in Ottawa.
