Arming Traders & Investors with Professional Grade Solutions

Since 2008, InvestiQuant has armed serious investors and professional traders with institutional-quality trading solutions based on statistical edges.

InvestiQuant’s automated strategies help clients better protect and grow their wealth by empowering their portfolios with the ability to generate attractive returns regardless of the direction of the broader stock market. Unlike most alternative investments, investors maintain 100% visibility, access and control of their capital, 24x7.

The company’s interactive, cloud-based trading solutions address the spectrum of traders’ needs from backtesting and edge discovery to real-time alerts - without the need for programming. 

InvestiQuant’s principals are West Point graduates with decades of combined retail and professional trading experience. Prior to InvestiQuant, they built a cloud-based, spend management platform for global enterprises and took it public on the NASDAQ exchange. InvestiQuant is backed by its founders and private investors, many of whom were clients during the 2008 financial crisis and subsequent years.
