What is The Swarm?

Vision and Philosophy

TMQR believes in combining human capital, domain-specific expertise in trading financial markets and technology to exploit algorithmic approaches to investing that offers the opportunity of lower cost, higher risk adjusted returns

 

TMQR has combined decades of profitable trading experience with insights from Big Data and Machine Learning techniques to produce trade-able, liquid, transparent, swarm sourced strategy indexes that provide adaptability and access to sources of “alpha” that were previously inaccessible or out of reach to many investors.

THE OPPORTUNITY

Our  founder has isolated a five-part plan to monetize the research investment and capitalize on the founding vision for the future of quantitative and algorithmic investing.

The object of more than 10 years of R&D and capital investment by the founder has concluded that directing the power of technology to simulate the behavior of thousands of professional traders gives TMQR a unique edge and insight into which investment strategies are working and which are to be avoided. These simulated traders are known as the “swarm”.
 

THE FIVE ALTERNATIVE LINES OF BUSINESS:

Proprietary Trading
Asymmetric Ventures

Commodity Trading Advisory services

TMQR Advisors

Alpha as a Service

/ Alpha capture
TMQR EXO Index

Hedge Fund Vehicle
TMQR Advisors

Index / ETF provider
TMQR EXO Index

 
 

OUR UNIQUE APPROACH

We advocate active Indexation

Active strategies can be codified and quantified.
A codified thesis can be tested.
Active Indexation can effectively replicate the essence of a trading strategy.

We are strategy agnostic

We seek asymmetric risk reward opportunities across all tradable asset classes.

Markets are cyclical, so is Alpha

Trading strategies tend to follow a pattern of being in then out of favor.
Even the best strategy in each category can periodically be out of favor.
Monitoring a broad set of strategies provides valuable information.

Persistence can be engineered and exploited

A rules-based approach can identify strategies in the ascendancy and those losing momentum.

Risk needs to be balanced

Allocating capital with a risk-parity approach improves risk-adjusted results.
