AI's CEO featured on Mornings with Maria Bartiromo on Dec. 14
Re-engineering the industry from the ground up to focus on who matters most - our investors
Where are the investors' yachts?
Investor profits have long been leeched away in a myriad of fashions while Wall Street players profited. No more. AI is built on the fundamental premise that the returns of our clients must always be our paramount objective. We firmly believe that if we hold true to this, we will be adequately compensated.
In order create the greatest possible degree of cost efficiency, AI is pushing the adoption of technologies to reduce our overhead and pass savings to those who matters most - our clients.
AIpha is a scarce commodity that has become difficult to find in traditional places. The AI team has the broad-based knowledge and experience to identify alpha in less followed strategies, and the global network to find it worldwide.
About Alpha Innovations
Alpha Innovations (AI) is a cutting-edge asset management platform, designed to provide uncommonly attractive investment options that inspire investors to put their capital to work. The fundamental premise upon which the firm is built is that the needs of the clients must always be paramount. Creating and preserving compelling returns for our investors is our unwavering imperative. Alpha Innovations is custom-engineered to solve the issues which interfere with achieving that imperative and which make investing in traditional asset management funds unappealing to fiduciaries, including:
Lack of custody and control of assets
Layering of fees
Embedded market beta and fees on that beta
Excessive 3rd party fees
Lackluster risk management and oversight
Large fund size bias
Fund governance issues
The AI team is composed of individuals from some of the world’s most highly respected financial firms, including Goldman Sachs, Point72, Balyasny, Morgan Stanley, and CITIC. Beyond illustrating AI’s commitment to excellence, the team has been strategically constructed to have the depth of knowledge and experience required to create solutions for asset management’s legacy problems.
The AI platform consists of a diverse suite of funds that are designed to provide institutional investors with an array of independent alphas. With thousands of fund managers globally, running what are in many cases complicated investment strategies, it is extremely challenging to find top managers and determine if they are capable of producing persistent alpha. The AI team has decades of success assessing the alpha generation capabilities of top investment talent at premier investment firms and constructing portfolios of these elite performers. Alpha is a scarce commodity, but with experience, skill, creativity and hard work, we can identify the alpha in strategies, isolate it, and deliver it in a cost-efficient manner for our clients.
Alpha Innovations Ltd. is regulated in in the U.S. by the CFTC/NFA as a Commodity Trading Advisor, is licensed to conduct Investment Business by the Bermuda Monetary Authority under the Investment Business Act 2003 and is an authorized Investment Manager by the Central Bank of Ireland.
We are launching our first funds on the AI platform in early 2019...
