AlphaTrAI Launches First External Fund and Expands Leadership Team to Bring its Artificial Intelligence-Enabled Asset Management Platform to High Net Worth Investors and Family Offices
AlphaTrAI, a venture-backed, technology driven asset management firm, announced the launch of its first external fund. Designed for high net worth investors and family offices, this systematic fund uses a proprietary suite of machine-learning models that dynamically adjust their market exposure based on their forecasts of risk and return. These models built by a multidisciplinary team of applied mathematicians, physicists, and AI experts generalize and modernize classic approaches such as signal detection and incorporate dynamic risk mitigation strategies. AlphaTrAI also announced the buildout of its leadership team to support expansion of its strategic initiatives.
Headquartered in San Diego and backed by Analytics Ventures, a venture capital firm focused on investments in companies with artificial intelligence at their core, AlphaTrAI’s automated trading platform mitigates human-based biases and errors and uses data and forward casting to achieve superior performance metrics.
Underscoring AlphaTrAI’s cutting-edge technology and deep financial services expertise, the company’s expanded management team encompasses CEO, Andreas Roell; Chief Science Officer, Homa Karimabadi; National Sales Director, Andre Hatibi; General Counsel and Chief Compliance & Operating Officer, Todd Spillane; and Chief Marketing Officer, Katherine Paulson.
