Press Release: RETINA™2.0 Upgrade
Quant Insight (Qi), the ground-breaking macro analytics provider for institutional investors, has rolled out RETINA™ 2.0, which includes major updates, new features, and improved functionality.

Qi’s RETINA™ (Real Time Notifications and Alerts) uses cutting edge data science and analytics to process and boil down the torrent of macro and market information to identify key shifts under the surface of global financial markets, covering 5,000+ instruments across all asset classes. Key signals are then pushed into clients’ workflows in real time via the Symphony and Slack messaging platforms. The result is unparalleled market transparency and giving back to users the one thing they lack most - time.

RETINA™ is fully customisable, and users can set it to monitor whatever they want to track. Notifications cover important shifts in macro factors including Nowcasting (real GDP across 20 countries), inflation expectations, financial conditions and more, as well as alerts on misalignments and mis-pricings. Users can also set the number of signals they want to receive, whether that is a stream of ideas, or just a handful of extremely robust, high-conviction data driven insights.
Each signal has a “signal strength” indication - a level of confidence in each individual idea. New metrics encompassing historical back tests, the profile of macro-warranted fair value plus a trend and momentum overlay help determine which signals present the highest probabilities.

RETINA™ 2.0 offers added interactivity. A user can pick a security and ask the Qi trade bot to track it continuously. The bot will then push a notification to the user in Symphony or Slack if it detects any significant change in macro regime, valuation and/or momentum. Aside from tracking, users can interact with the RETINA could-based market “brain” by asking for a full analysis of any security.

Another major feature new to RETINA™ 2.0, is the introduction of alerts on Qi’s Vol Indicator - a way for clients to gain early insights into a potential period of volatility for chosen assets.

What’s more, RETINA™ 2.0 will also include a Performance Table which is broken down by asset class and summarises the performance of the previous month’s signals. The performance table also includes a Bullish vs. Bearish ratio and number of trades closed against those still open, allowing traders to gain a holistic overview of how assets classes in their portfolio have performed in the last four weeks.

RETINA™ is already being used by world-leading hedge fund portfolio managers and institutional investors with hundreds of billions in AUM.

Mahmood Noorani, Co-Founder and CEO for Quant Insight, comments:

“Quant Insight’s core idea is that in this age of data overload, processing power, data science and ground-breaking technology are more important than ever. Investors who incorporate hard evidence based on cutting edge quantitative analysis now have the advantage.

“Quant Insight has made significant leaps and bounds as a company in recent months, with a new offering for retail investors, iQbyQi, and a number of major partnerships in the works.

“However, RETINA™ is, and always will be, our flagship product. RETINA provides live alerts when any important macro factor - inflation expectations, measures of risk appetite or moves in credit markets - experiences a large shift. And what’s even more important is that users can see the impact that all the information out there is having on asset prices.

“In short, RETINA™ is a source of trade ideas, a way to track a user’s trade position and pushes notifications alerting user of any changes in the underlying macro landscape all customised and delivered seamlessly into the user’s daily workflow.”

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.”

Quant Insight’s AI-based financial market brain (RETINA) scans millions of data points daily to provide a succinct overview on how macro forces are impacting all asset classes, from FX, indices and single stocks, to commodities, bond futures and cryptocurrency. RETINA reduces millions of 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.

Quant insight was co-founded by experienced macro investor and portfolio manager, Mahmood Noorani, who has previously worked at Morgan Stanley, UBS, BlueCrest Capital, Citi Capital Advisors Global Macro Fund, and Credit Suisse. Other key partners in the business include Professor Michael Hobson, Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Cambridge, who authored the Qi White Paper on methodology, which emphatically validated the Qi algorithm, and Professor Ryan Prescott-Adams, an academic leader on Machine Learning and former lecturer at Harvard, who sits on Qi’s Academic Advisory board. Qi’s investors also include Alan Howard and JP Stein, with additional investors including financial market professionals, the ex-CEO of a major European investment bank, and the Chairman of a top three US investment bank.

Currently, with the rise of the retail trader, Quant Insight is developing an API, which allows them to partner with online brokers and messaging platforms, granting retail investors access to some of the cutting-edge analytical tools and trading signals that are being used by institutional investors.

Mahmood Noorani, Co-Founder and CEO for Quant Insight, comments:

“For too long the investment world has relied on a mixture of subjective research, educated guesses and an abundance of data that has made accurate decision-making impossible.

“To tackle this endemic problem, we have combined advanced mathematics, data science, machine-learning, and decades of financial expertise to create a fully-automated financial market brain, RETINA, that scans markets globally, intraday, ingesting millions of data points daily on high frequency macro information, to identify high probability opportunities and deliver signals in real time.

“It’s not a coincidence that the world’s best known hedge funds and asset managers use Qi. Our growing client base of institutional investors has been universally positive, and we have a number of exciting partnerships, product updates and major announcements to unveil over the coming months, particularly as we tackle the retail investment market with increasing efficiency.”
