London and New York. November 23, 2021 – Quant Insight (Qi), a quantitative financial market analytics and asset insights provider, has partnered with Symphony, the leading markets’ infrastructure and technology platform, to offer macro-based insights to Symphony’s global financial community.

Qi has built a trade BOT, RETINA™ (‘Real time Notifications and Alerts) that will sit on the Symphony platform and push succinct macro-based insights into Symphony chat rooms. Real-time push notification will be tailored to each user based on profile and interests. Users can also ping RETINA to request updated charts for any security. A tracking feature will be released in the coming weeks, which will allow users to track securities of interest in real time and be notified in case of significant shifts.

Qi’s RETINA™ is available on the Symphony Marketplace to Symphony users. With RETINA™, Symphony users will be alerted to macro-based valuation anomalies, shifts in key macro drivers and changes in underlying trends covering 6,000 market instruments including indices, sectors, stocks, FX, rates, futures, commodities, and cryptocurrencies.
Updates from the trade BOT will be relevant, timely and sparse, ensuring users are only updated on significant shifts – typically between two and five notifications a day.

The cloud-based financial market brain behind Qi uses state of the art ‘world-first’ machine learning technology and high-quality data inputs including GDP Nowcasts and has been developed in collaboration with world leaders in machine learning (professor Mike Hobson of Cambridge University and Professor Ryan Prescott Adams of Princeton University). RETINA reduces millions of publicly available data points into two to five essential daily insights and is already being used by some of the world’s best known investment banks, hedge funds and asset managers, including Alan Howard of Brevan Howard. RETINA was built by investors for investors. The team includes experienced former portfolio managers from Brevan Howard, Millennium, BlueCrest, Credit Suisse, Morgan Stanley, Fidelity, and others.

“The global financial and markets community is already on Symphony, which makes it the perfect platform for the Quant Insights’ RETINA BOT. In a world of permanent overload of information, professionals truly value technology and developments that will allow them to be effective and efficient, the right information when they need it as they conduct business. RETINA does just that. It will be of great value to the buy-side community”, explained Umesh Patel, global head of strategic alliances and partnerships at Symphony.

Mahmood Nourani, co-founder and CEO for Quant Insight comments: “At Quant Insight, we understand that asset managers are inundated by torrents of information, including news headlines, emails, messages and tweets. Turning this information into actionable knowledge is a major problem. By using scientific and industry proven quant insight tools, RETINA converts information to knowledge in real time and increases transparency to help investors make sound investments and formulate accurate trading strategies.

“Our growing client base of institutional investors and world-renowned hedge funds and asset managers have been universally positive, and this new partnership with Symphony presents a unique opportunity for its platform users to gain cutting-edge insights into the macro-drivers impacting the securities that are of interest to them.”

“The rise of the retail investor will make life harder for institutional investors. They’re changing the rules and are now such a big part of trade flows, that institutional investors can no longer afford to ignore them,” Mahmood Noorani, CEO and co-founder of Quant Insight (Qi) told The TRADE.

Ten years ago it was the traditional bottom-up equity investors that dominated equity flows, but that’s no longer the case, says Noorani, who has a background in macro investing for hedge funds, asset managers and investment banks. He points to figures published by JP Morgan, which suggest that 60% of US equity flows are now driven by retail investors, and only 25% are coming from traditional bottom-up equity investors.

  • 10-year Treasury yields have been bucking consensus ever since the start of Q2 2021, moving lower even as inflation chatter has only grown louder. History and current macro drivers explain why this is happening.
  • DataTrek Research believes Treasury prices anchor on long-run historical inflation trends. Convincing this market that the next 10 years will be different from the last decade could take a long time. It took 25 years, for example, for Treasuries to fully reset after the 1970s.
  • Quant Insight’s proprietary data analysis shows oil prices need to rise materially – and quickly – from here to push yields higher. And even if US equity markets are calm just now, there is actually a relationship between credit concerns in other markets and declining Treasury yields.
  • Bottom line: 10-year Treasuries don’t trade exclusively on current US inflation data. They never have. To predict their next move, you need to look at a wide range of other macro drivers.
