- PoulinHugin Patterns and Predictions For Hedge Funds -The long-term success of a hedge fund, and its ability to outperform competitors, is dependent upon the firm developing and refining a proprietary research capability that enables it to uncover market inefficiencies and the windows of opportunity in which to exploit them, and to identify investment risks and establish the means to track and manage them. Historically, the larger the money management firm and the deeper its pockets, the easier it has been to meet these challenges.
Now, however, with Poulin-Hugin Patterns and Predictions software - - released today by Poulin-Hugin, an internationally recognized leader in Bayesian-based multi-factor analysis software - - even small money management firms, which make up the majority of hedge fund managers, have the potential to more affordably and effectively address these challenges and benefit from enhancing their proprietary research capabilities.
Poulin-Hugin, an internationally recognized leader in Bayesian (Hugin) based multi-factor analysis software, today released Poulin-Hugin Patterns and Predictions software, a powerful, customizable analytics software application for hedge fund managers. With Poulin-Hugin Patterns and Predictions software even small money management firms, which make up the majority of hedge fund managers, have the potential to more affordably and effectively address these challenges and benefit from enhancing their proprietary research capabilities.
Poulin-Hugin's powerful, customizable analytics software enables a hedge fund manager to develop his own custom model and run analysis using any variables/factors he wishes (e.g., stocks, indices, other factors). The money manager can import historical data and run real time data feeds as well (e.g., from P/Es to moving averages, etc.). In constructing their model the money manager can easily aggregate a series of factors, each of which they can rank and/or give weight to in their model. Best of all, model construction with Poulin-Hugin Patterns and Predictions software enables the hedge fund manager who is not expert in Bayesian-based modelling to easily visualize the construction and interrelation of the multiple factors comprising their model. Poulin-Hugin also offers support services for helping hedge fund managers develop or refine models for their own investment process.
